(projects i'm involved in)
I'm Australian and have been living in Tokyo for 26 years now, working in the finance industry. My wife and I have had the "Agri Itch" for a few years now. With "Five Zero" approaching we have only just decided to take the plunge, retiring from our respective employments for a life in agriculture. For reasons I don't need to explain to those perusing this website, I was immediately taken by the Permaculture concept. I have spent the past few months reading up on Permaculture and agriculture in general, and now intend to start taking those first nervous steps towards implementation......and we're talking full country living here. Where and what is still up in the air but Japan, perhaps Chiba, seems to be the more likely prospect at this stage.
I'll travel to Australia soon and perhaps enrol in a course or two there. In the mean time, I'd love to meet as many Japan-based Permies (and related types!) as I can. I really am starting from zero but am as "keen as mustard" to learn and get on with it.
