Mr Gu comes into school every Wednesday with his delicious veg. He also sells great honey from western China – not cheap but very tasty.
Do go along and talk to him about his project in the south of Nanjing. He is a very interesting man and maybe your students may be interested too in finding out more about his farming methods.
If you cannot get to see him on Wednesdays between 2.30 and 3.30pm I am sure you can make some other arrangements.
“Time Farm is a permaculture organic farm. Until 2017 we have been practising permaculture for 5 years. Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability and resilience of nature ecosystems. Permaculture design is a system of assembling conceptual, material, and strategic components in a pattern which functions to benefit life in all its forms. The philosophy behind permaculture is working with, rather than against , nature. There is NO chemical fertilizer, GMO, pesticide, or herbicide used inside the farm. We collect rain water for irrigation. Water from nearby pond is purified by a constructed wetland before watering plants. More detail can be found at our website http://www.timefarm.com.cn
We will bring some fresh vegetables(potato, carrot, green bean, green lettuce and bokchoy,etc,.) for onsite sale at NIS in the afternoon of next Wednesday, Nov 15 from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. Welcome to join us.
You can also order through wechat. Our wechat ID is Timefarm. Every Wednesday afternoon on school days we will delivery your orders to NIS for your pickup”
