Hello this is Jerome, Furuichicho forest gardener, for a sustainable life in Japan:
We replant Eden’s garden!
Check out the presentation on Youtube: http://bit.ly/NiwamoriYoutube
I’m planting a forest garden in Nara Japan, we called it “Niwamori Food Forest Nara” the BFF (Bio Food forest). Niwamori project is a best practice showcase to encourage the Nara and Japanese government to “upgrade” the forest, the public and private green spaces. We work on forest patches inside or just bordering the cities, and turn them into something similar to a Satoyama 里山, but more effective. I want to make Japan more self-sufficient in terms of food supply. We can prepare the country to energy shortages by encouraging the use of perennial plants combinations for a resilient ultra local food system.
The forest garden has been proven to be the most effective system for compact, intensive, 4 seasons production on 7 layers of growth. It is climate change proof, sequestrates a lot of carbon and enhances soil life and biodiversity.
Please consider visiting Niwamori and learn about permaculture and food forestry with me. I’ll host you. I’ll teach you and even feed you “farm to table” if you are interested.
We have to train the new Japanese heroes as soon as possible, a team of new Captain Planet.
Let’s change a bit of Japan, one garden forest at the time.
