Stories from The Farm
This project is a collection of stories inspired by the events, discoveries, anthropology, animals, insects and living things in and around 5Eyes Farm. Fiction, poetry and mainly short stories are threaded here. Some posts and how to’s are scattered in here too.
As we develop 5EyesFarm from a chemical patch into a rich organic farm, the goal is to create a forest garden (or lots of them joined together). These provide the best option for diverse food security with the least input and work. It is a model we are trying, so we can show it and then duplicate it in the local community. The trees are growing! Please join in with us on this innovation.
A Closer Look
A closer look is all about the fauna and flora with a focus on insect life, animals and indigenous life here at 5EyesFarm. Come and take a closer look with us as we develop a visual database of living science and beauty here in West Java.
Organic farming is more than healthy chemical free food production. It is a way of life. Not in a religious sense but in that all things are connected. The water, the soil, even the air all affect the naturalness of the growing environment. The many living things that work together to create good soil and water and air need tending, and we are learning to work in this place with these elements. Everything here is part of organic life including the recycling and
Great Green Waste Challenge
We have found a way to process green waste and recycle it into compost and food for the animals through a ferment process. Instead of burying it or burning it as so many do here we are helping to save the environment while creating fantastic food for the animals and the farm.
Natural medicine and remedies reside in the most common of plants. And we are slowly discovering the amazing benefits of good food. As well as the food we eat, the organic food from the farm, which tastes better, richer, sweeter, stronger we are learning to heal from what we eat. The good food quest is on.
