Incredible Bamboo Bikes from Ghana

When Bob and I lived in the redwood forests of CA, we planted a bamboo forest under the redwoods and used the four varieties of bamboo in the creation of Bob’s sculpture as well as our lamps. I even used the small twigs from the black bamboo to make earrings and brooches. I’m delighted that these enterprising entrepreneurs in Ghana have found such novel uses for it and are giving jobs to 40 locals as well. Click on the URL below to see the video.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
