So various community that I met in this congress, mostly are communities which have awareness to the sustainable living, especially river's life.
A Seeds Community... sound so strange.
Yes, the community's members have an awareness to sustainability of so many plants which have been rare.
They collect so various seeds from so many places, especially from the road side.
When they across a bare land, they will 'throw' the seeds there.
They let the seed germinated and grow naturally on our hot humid climate.
They hope, some day the seed will turn to a big tree and make the environment become greener and fresher.
Another community is a bean community.
A community that concern to development of alternative food sources, especially beans which have been rare.
As an alternative food source, beans have so many benefits.
Bean is a cheap and great protein source.
Bean also an easy growing plant, and also drought resistant.
This plant also a great green manure, cause it will fix the nitrogen from the open air and then add the nitrogen into the soil.
A great natural fertilizer.
This community makes leaflets to educate peoples about beans.
And the interesting thing, this community shared lots of little seed's packages.
Each package consist of seven varieties of rare beans.
How lucky I get seven packages.
I will share the package into my own community, so they can 'conserve' these rare beans on their own garden.
For all of the communities, thanks for your awareness to our rivers.
Thanks for sharing us the seeds, compost, leaflets, knowledge and also experience.
You all really inspiring me.

What a great idea! I've thrown wildflower seeds into the open areas around my house, too, hoping to grow more food for the local wildlife. :o)ReplyDelete
