How did you become interested in permaculture?

I just wanted to be practical on my own life. it is such a joy to be hands on. Somehow I met PC, while i wanted to do so many and had little energy and time, needed to be efficient … and it was so natural for me to do it PC way.

If you have taken a Permaculture Design Course, who was your was your teacher and what year did you receive your certification?

Geoff Lawton from Permaculture Institute (Tagari farm) in Australia in 1998

① Grow own vege and rice, build earth friendly houses, make bio gas plant etc. ② Seed Saving (i run local seed saving group in Awa region, Japan "Awa no tane"育てて守ろう%E3%80%80安房の種/ ③ Sharing resource by publishing permaculture calendar , PC DVD and booklet.
