Profile

I am developing a food forest in Niigata, while teaching English at Niigata Agricultural College.

I completed permaculture design course in 2017 in Japan.
I have worked with permaculture farms in New Zealand 2014 - 2018. I found my ideal food forest there, Guyton's. I moved to a small "satoyama" community in Tokamchi city in 2016 and became a part-time farmer. I am learning and experimenting synecoculture here.



My goal is to grow big fruit trees and share the fruits with friends, birds and animals in the world. Fruits are meant to be eaten by animals. They became sweet and tasty, so to be found and eaten, then its seeds are delivered to grow somewhere.  It is super easy for us,  just eat fruits and sow the seeds. Please come and join!

木で熟した桃を食べたことがきっかけで、果物の魅力に目覚める。

協生農法に出会い、果物だけが自然界で人間に食べられて種を運んでもらうために美味しくなっていること(つまり相思相愛)に気づく。

十日町の耕作放棄地を借りたり買ったりして果樹を植え始める。

地球を果物の木でいっぱいにすることにわくわくしながら、木を植える毎日。

豪雪地帯なので、長い冬の間はおいしいフルーツを求めて旅に出ます。
