I am traveling to Japan next year, hoping to visit/complete my Permaculture Design Course at one of the beautiful properties. I have read in previous forums that Fukuokas farm is perhaps challenging to organize visits to, although these were from 2012. If anyone has updated information on Fukuokas farm, Akame Natural Farm or Ittoen, inc websites or contacts as I seem to be struggling to get very far! Thanks

Hi,

While in Japan if you are interested,you can buy seeds of Happy hill rice which Fukuoka had cultivated. The seeds are available on the following site -

This is supposed to be a hardy strain of rice. This company can not ship it internationally....


Regards,
Nandan

Hi Charlotte,

Akame Natural Farm in Japanese. Don't think they have an English website.

When are you planning on coming to Japan?
We are in Hyogo prefecture. A bit early to show you much of our place (7 acres), still in the earthworks stage, but we may be able to meet up anyway.
