About the Need:

Living in a remote destination has its challenges. Residents battle higher food and living costs and businesses are challenged to operate with rising overhead and fuel surcharges. With that, local residents actually do appreciate valuable community services that are offered for free. The obvious challenge is trying to sustain and grow a free community service with very limited capacity.

About the Need:

Due to the nuclear tragedy in Japan known as "Fukushima" that occurred on March 11, 2011, many people in Japan have been displaced from their farms and homes and have no employment and no effective assistance from the Japanese government. My farm partner, Ben, and I have decided to help by offering an opportunity to farmers from Japan to preserve cultural assets. But, we have no money and no leverage. We do have a 50 acre farm, large farmhouse and open hearts.

We speak to the rational brain, yet the primal brain decides.
