台湾華語 初級






'Why am I born in this world?'
The way of life of the plants (food) that my mother's land and the earth grow gives a hint to such simple questions, and we began to learn about ”a natural way of living” by practicing natural farming using the wisdom of our predecessors in the East.
Here, we aim to meet life through agriculture and food and live a spiritually rich life.
The most important thing is not what you eat (the content of the food), but what you eat (the purpose of the food), and how you eat it. By carrying out such practices day by day, not only the mind and body but also the consciousness changes.

there are many various kinds of activities you can do here, using your own characteristics to feel "life".

Health, politics, economics, the environment... I think it's important to restore your own sound body and consciousness, not to change everything else.

It's the perfect place for those with an aspirational spirit.

・Old traditional house with a guest house in a very marginal settlement.
・Natural farming in a field with a view of the sea.
・Vegan (vegetarian) cuisine.
・Rice fields cultivated from abandoned land.

※Basically, we are looking for a long-term Wwoofer.

●What you can learn here
⇒The art of living in rural areas based on agriculture.
⇒Building a relationship with food, which is life.
⇒How to get along with people in the countryside
⇒How to become independent as a self-employed person.









【Will you join us in building "an organic veg-town" with us?】

We have realised that we can build great security if we can provide ourselves with food, clothing and shelter.
It may even be possible to break away a little from the capitalist system that is now beginning to show its end.
So we are working on the following three projects to achieve this.

(1) Sustainable agriculture.
We are currently working to cultivate the abandoned land and turn it into fields.
The soil is still being prepared, but vegetables and rice are still being produced.
In the midst of a food crisis, why don't you experience for yourself that there is more than enough to eat from nature's gifts?
Nature teaches us that much of the information coming in from the outside (especially from the mass media) is far from the truth.
Most of the vegetables produced are used for processing, such as Jomon-style pickles (pickles full of lactic acid bacteria that do not rot) and miso.

(2) Sustainable housing (carpentry staff wanted!)
Currently, there are about 10 empty houses in the area that we own or rent.
Many of them need major or minor renovations, but they are all houses that can still be lived in for a long time if they are utilised. You can immerse yourself in the renovations to your heart's content.
We have a live-in carpenter on staff at the moment, so there is a lot to learn from him too.
After the renovation, the possibilities are endless, such as obtaining permission for a farmhouse guest house, renting out the space, or turning it into a shared house.
We are also looking for vacant houses that are still ready to be lived in, and are working to invite migrants who like this kind of environment and have the spirit to create their own work to live there.

(3) Making clothes that can be worn for a long time (Chikuchikutai are wanted!)
There are many kimonos left behind in empty houses.
Some of these kimonos are very valuable. It is also possible to purchase good quality cloth from a nearby organic cotton cloth shop.
Cotton cultivation is also started, depending on manpower.
And many old tools can be found in the empty old houses. Many of them can still be used for a long time and can be re-used again if they are remade.

These things are not yet up to speed very much on our own.
So we hope to get your help.
Please do not hesitate to contact us.

We don't need your education or knowledge.
If you have the desire to create a 'two-way joyful relationship'.
The will, or rather the feeling, that you want to create together with us is important.
(Complainers and complainers are not suitable.)

We are looking for long-term people.
But before that, let's start with a trial month - a trial to check each other's direction.
We will then discuss the future and decide on the details.

Please have a look at our introduction video.

*Basically, priority is given to accepting those who have not been vaccinated(covid-19).
(We believe that the minimum we can accept is not vaccination or not, but at least those who have questions about vaccination. Also, some of our staff are prone to shedding).

※Basically, priority is given to accepting those who have not been vaccinated for Covid-19.
It does not matter whether they have been vaccinated or not, but it is better if they have at least some doubts about vaccination for Covid-19.
Also, some of our staff are prone to shedding.
