Once upon a time, a long long time ago, our paradise was a chemical monoculture garlic plantation.
In the rainy season it was GMO soy bean and rice.
After arriving in 2008, I ended this practice and left the land bare. I didn’t know how to grow anything, but at least I knew the land was organic.
I moved to the land first living under a plastic tarp over 3 bamboo poles. Neighboring farmers helped me build a little bamboo hut and earthen toilet. I began some basic vegetable cultivation. Baths were in the stream. It was the quintessential idyllic simple life.
Now 4 and a half years later, you can see the transformation of this land in the rest of this blog.
It’s a beautiful healing process for this land and a wonderful, truly joyful, thing to watch!
We encourage all with land to do the same.
It will only reward you!
