I'm a Kiwi Mama in search of my childhood roots back in Western Samoa. I love gardening and making artistic things which could be helpful in my startup home and income on my small farm. I hope my family will embrace a move to the pacific where we can explore a more chilled life out of the draining rat race. I have 4 acres to explore opportunity with. I hope to grow herbs/crops and have farm animals and provide something for tourists. We are near to a surf beach. I'm a Beauty Therapist. There will be hurdles to consider but I'm jumping in anyways.
Woo Hoo. Thanks for sharing.

Hello, I have been wondering if this could be a solution to help people in Samoa living in poverty. Lots of houses have a leaking roof, could this process be used on the roof? Would the material withstand sudden heaven rainfall and cyclones? Could it help cool the homes as well?

Thanks so much!! this is very useful and rejogged my memory as I had previously read this article on Daisuke Goto. I hope they're still successfully growing in Apia. All the best, Mama Ro

Hello, thanks for sharing!

I'm really inetrested in growing muchrooms on my farm in Tiavi, Apia, Western Samoa. It's a rainforest enviroment. Any ideas of what may grow? I'm looking at different vegetables and herbs for residential use but also commercial growing for the local restaurants. I was researching mushrooms a while ago but thought it would be so differcult. It's 20-33* most of the time and some monsoon rain. I'm looking at greenhouses and using shipping containers but it's all trial and error. We have rich soil with volcanic rocks. We also have a beach area those mushrooms in the sand are amazing but I can't seethem growing in Samoa. I was wondering about truffles?

Funny, I was just talking about water buffalo. We only have a few acres and can't imagine the cost of sending buffalo over to the Islands in comparison to smaller herds and already have cattle which we need to thin out as grazing and space is an issue. Oh that sounds crazy-scary! well, I suppose we could use them as "watch Emu's" the locals are pretty dodgy in these parts, I heard the Emu run fast and attack swiftly might be just what I need. Feeding time must be like Jurasic Park. I heard they can break out of metal fencing too! Not sure how I'll catch them if they do. Hmm, Really need to speak with a breeder. Thanks for your help!

I'm exploring breeding red meat animals for a home and income on my 4 acres with partly volcanic rock in my slightly sloping paddocks currently housing cows. Any suggestions of breeding in this environment with weather extremes varying in average from 20 winter -30* summer it can also be foggy and a rain forest type environment, so hot and damp with sudden monsoon rain and hurricanes every few years or so. I'm also concerned about safety as I heard the Emu's can scratch straight through skin and I wanted a family farm. I was hoping for a low fat meat option as well as small hobby start up farm for income. I haven't looked into quarantine yet. I'll consider other animals such as goats as well. I have no experience. Many thanks or your help.
