From radiation ravaged Fukushima to permaculture future

Still from the TBS news article

Last month a dozen students from Minamisoma city, from radiation ravaged Fukushima prefecture, visited the Hepburn district. They inspected Hepburn Wind’s locally owned wind farm before coming to tour Melliodora. We hope they have learned an alternative pathway to the nuclear powered life.

The story of their visit to Australia went to air through a Japan’s national TV network, TBS on April 9.

Following you can see from the letter of thanks from the organisers of the visit, the kids had some inspirational time, away from radiation contamination. No doubt we will stay in touch with the project.
