Got Gardening or Farming Skills?
The Asian Rural Institute (ARI), an international training ground for grassroots rural leaders, sustained significant damage from the earthquake. ARI is now asking for volunteers to serve with them, specifically planting and caring for the crops and caring for the farm animals.
Would you consider giving a week or two, or longer, to help ARI on their farm?
ARI is located 110 km from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. ARI tests the air and water every day. The radiation level in the air and water continues to stay well below the government warning levels. The soil is improving everyday, but a child, teen or young woman should still not work with the soil. However, anyone over 30 years is ok.
Training one rural leader means training for a whole community.
