Standing in the middle of a dirt road in the small Bekaa town of Tal Al-Akhdar, Hussein Kazoun spread his arms, pointing at the surrounding 2 square kilometers of open field and said, "Welcome to my office".What initially began as a vision for a simple organic farm has since evolved into a steadily thriving compost production, mass green waste removal and distribution business.Within a year, Kazoun and a small team of five farm workers managed to manually divert approximately 120 tons of green waste away from the Litani River area, at a rate of 5-10 tons of waste a day. For want of an effective waste management system, trash from local businesses will otherwise find its way into the Litani.Kazoun created it to be a microcosm of the natural world and unlike the rigid organization common in commercial farming.Kazoun not only hopes to expand his business but change the way people farm in Lebanon altogether.
