She than asked the participants whether those materials are cheap or freely available in their communities. The participants agreed that those materials are available in their village.
Kibo staff asked the participants to move with her in the bush and search for the grass that is required for building stoves. It was very nice for the grass to be found in their community which helped the participants to further understand that the materials are found in their own community.
Kibo staff demonstrated to the participants how to practically chop grass and encouraged every one to practice grass chopping. She also told the group that to find time for every one to come with a heap of grass and work together to chop grass.
