Manavata Japan Updates
Overall today’s meetings, farm visits, yoga workshops and discussions are very useful. Here are some brief updates:
A Yoga teacher Miki Nakayama San and other 3 families who have committed for 3H mission: After 3 hours Yoga workshop today in this village:
Humanity is our identity:
Bio-fuel for their farming vehicles from used cooking oil collected from restaurants free of cost:
House is solar powered, self-sufficient and roof is clay based:
Meeting with Natural /Organic Farmers in Hiroshima region:
Dear Shigeo Sakamoto San, Keiko Sakamoto San, Yohei Sakamoto San, Kayo Sakamoto San and Taihei Sakamoto San,
It was great meeting you at your house with such a warm welcome and hospitality. Very pleased to see visit such a wonderful family with the right practice of great values, family culture and organic cultivation. I could experience with Manavata 3H family culture and the vision of one global family at your house! It fills my heart with joy unspeakable with such a warm welcome and hospitality and sharing knowledge for good cause.
Paddy field similar to India, but mostly line based plantation with seedling machine and also good weed removing tools used including ducks in the farm.
Weed removal in an hour time for half acre land with this tool, reduces man power cost: (they do weekly once)
Intercropping and crop changing similar to our natural farming techniques, I have also suggested them to make natural pest control implementation effectively as some of the green leaves are attracting more pests.
Carrot seeds production and tomatoes growing together surrounded by beans (moulting techniques also similar):
