Sweet Water India Project Update. Shajan John of MSOE and Dr. Sunny George of Kerela will be visiting Sandy Syburg’s Purple Cow Composting facility this coming Monday. DNR staffers have called Sandy’s work “The Gold Standard of Commercial Composting.” Sweet Water partners with “sweet soil” experts too, and Sandy hopes to build upon his recent Central American project to help India address her soil depletion and urban waste challenges. Last week Stanley Pfrang of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation brought an Indian water industry delegation to Sweet Water and this week Shajan John is organizing a brainstorming gathering “about a truly unique opportunity to experienceKerala, India.
National Geographic Traveler has listed Kerala among its “50 Places of a Lifetime.”NGT describes this region as a “vibrant array of customs, smorgasbord of diverse cuisines, and stunning landscapes — from tropical palm-fringed beaches to breezy high-altitude tea plantations — South India offers visitors a truly mind-bending repertoire of things to see and do.”
We will present the exciting concept of developing a highly-personalized tour program that memorably combines A Safe Taste of India Travel Amenities, immersive cultural interaction and the ability to impact global social change.
