Tony Lopes



Electrical engineer, took up a career in construction project management, in the industrial sector, for 16 years.
Came across one of Einstein's quotes, "It is every person's obligation to put back into the earth at least what they took out." So I changed careers and now pursue a passion in food gardens and low tech sustainable technologies. I think that we have complicated our lives too much and I prefer simplicity.

I build solar geysers, solar ovens, and wood gas stoves using recycled/simple materials and I converted my bakkie (vehicle) to run on waste vegetable oil. I am also going back to basics with food and am involved in many community food gardens.
