私たちは屋久島という島で自然に極力負荷をかけないサステナブルなライフスタイルを探究しながら、島の自然の魅力と私たちの暮らしをお伝える学びの場(ホリスティック・エデュケーション)を企画運営しています。

自然を壊さない暮らしとは極力自分たちで必要なものは自給自足することだと思っています。

島の資源をうまく利用しながら暮らす日々はとても手間暇がかかりまが、それを丁寧に一つ一つクリアしていく作業の中にたくさんの幸福感があると思っています。

私たちのフィールド滞在に向いている方は、サステナブルな暮らしを体験してみたい、学びたい方です。観光目的で、安く旅費を抑えたいとおもっている方には当ホストはお勧めではありません。

島の自然で豊かに暮らす方法をウーファーとホストが共に知恵を出し合って創造していく作業がメインとなります。世界中の方々とオーガニックがもたらしてくれる心地よさや喜びを共感しながら、平和な世界を築いていきたいと思っています。どうぞよろしくお願いします。
We are planning and operating a place of learning (holistic education) that conveys the charm of the nature of the island and our lives while exploring a sustainable lifestyle that does not break nature as much as possible on the island of Yakushima.

I think that living without destroying nature means being self-sufficient in what we need as much as possible.

It takes a lot of time and effort to live while making good use of the island's resources, but I think there is a lot of happiness in the work of carefully clearing it one by one.

People who are suitable for our field stay are those who want to experience and learn about sustainable living. This host is not recommended for those who want to keep travel expenses low for sightseeing purposes.

The main is for the woofer and the host to share their wisdom and create ways to live richly in the nature of the island. I would like to build a peaceful world by sympathizing the comfort and joy that organic products bring. Nice to meet you.
