    你們好
    我是阿利
    現在在台灣念環境教育
    目前在馬來西亞放暑假
    如果要參訪你們
    不知道甚麼時間方便?

    另外….我對你們用廚餘來種植
    有點小意見:用廚餘其實難免會讓食物殘留的生長激素,荷爾蒙等等回流到土地
    然後被植物吸收喔

    我们二四六下午会到巴刹收烂菜烂鱼,其余的时间我们没有定时的活动。你看你几时几点要过来,我们再看看能不能,这样会比较方便我们。
    至于厨余可能会有残留的化学药物,这方面我们当时能交流下。我们也有质疑过这问题,有些人的意见是当这些东西发酵时,会把化学药物清除。

  3. 那些人的意见没错。土壤中的细菌能够分解化学药物,别看小细菌的威力。

    只要没有用农药(长期农药的话,用人工人肥料才能够让土地像样),细菌就能够发挥出更好的能力。

    那你現在怎樣了?有沒有還有衝動務農,哈哈

    我的理想生活就是简单的农园生活。种自己喜欢吃的蔬果,能的话最好也种些茶叶。会不会贪心了一点呢?
    你们有面子书吗?

    想要賺很多很多錢的人才算貪心。有衝動的話可以來我園當義工,體驗看看務農是否適合你,夢想總是完美的,但當你真的做起來可能又不一樣了。如果你不是要以商業化、資本化的去經營農場,那務農要經得起日曬雨淋、疲累、骯髒、低收入等等,這些難度並不是一般習慣了冷氣房的人可以忍受的。哈哈,所以你最好先體驗體驗下。

    無論如何,真的很高興在這現實社會中,還有些志同道合的人。

    Hi,
    I came across your site while searching for information and news about my home town–Pantai Acheh.I left Pantai Acheh for UK in 1973. So impressed with your commitment to organic farming. This brought back my childhood memories. We had pigs, chickens and ducks at our back yard. We also had a small allotment with different vegetables.
    Would love to visit your farm when I next go home ie in October.
