About us and our partners:
Liane Greeff and Roy MacGregor are the main active members of EcoDoc Africa. We are nomadic and travel from project to project, spending months in different parts of South Africa, and increasingly we plan to spend more time further North exploring rainwater harvesting, sustainable agricultural practices and micro-hydro projects in other parts of Africa.
Other members of EcoDoc Africa are Philip Owen (who provides the Secretarial base in Mpumalanga, and which we are currently using as a base to operate from, and where most of the editing takes place), and December Ndlovu who helps with community visits and translation, and Zainab Adams who provides support.
