在我們即將生產是食物前，我們希望能向這大地致敬。草是土地上的先驅植物，然后進化成攀藤植物，小樹、大灌/喬樹等。在這過程中，bacteria, protozoa, nemetodes, fungi, fungus陸續加入土地中，滋養土地和植物。這自然過程可能用上十年，一百年，一千年或更多。茅草是眾所周知的第一代低等植物，只有他們能在不肥沃及缺乏生命力的土地上生長，可想而知他們是有著多么頑強的生命力。
After a long silence from Grassroot, now here we come with a good news for all who concerns about us. As you may know or you may not know, the area we going to farm is harsh, wilderness and full of cough grass (as known as lalang), so we need dredge to plough the land . After a busy of fruits seoson, and rain season afterward, now we finally can start on our farming on that laond.
Before that, we wish to deliver our grateful appreciate to our Mother Earth. Natural have it own way of living. Grass is the 1st generation of all the plant In the land. Succession and revolution going on on that land become forbs, bushes, shrub, pioneer tree, and climate with the present of bacteria, protozoa, nemetodes, fungi, fungus etc. Cough grass usually is the grass that grown 1st in the land that is very poor, so it proof that cough grass got a really strong and tough vitality as it can grow in a little resources. When bacteria, protozoa, nemetodes, fungi, fungus come into the land by sequence, succession happen. This process may take 10 years, 100 years or even 1000 years naturally. But in the name of food for humans, peoples accelerate it, make the succession become faster to come out with what human wish.
Grassroot also going through the process of acceleration, but we do it with consciously. Our farm full of lalang and only have very little shrub. We accelerate it so that the land become suitable for vegetable and tree to grow. So, we have to add in bacteria, we have to add in organic matter to attract microorganism, worms etc to come to our land to work for us. We break the nature succesion, but we not mean to break the entire nature asset. We hope to sustainability work with the land and environment, abide by nature law, to create food for future.
So, please do share the grateful and happiness with us for to start to work with natural. Let’s share what we do now. Basically, we start to add in organic matter into the soil, namely left over wood, rice bran, rice, husk, grass etc. This is the long process that we have to do to reach the healthy soil. We also do mulching to provide a better place for microorganism and worms to live in soil。 We also planting some plants eg: yam, banana, pineapple, tapioca etc.
And also, we start to build a house as our storage, resting place and also our compost area. Thanks for the 3 man in our farm that put a lot of efforts on it. We do a lot of designing on our farm, planning what we gonna to plant, schedule of it, planning the location of pond, chicken coup, planting area etc.
