A propos de l'organisation locale

美土里ファーム/MIDORI FARM

La mission principale de notre association est, à long terme, de devenir un centre d'éducation et de préservation environnemental capable de répondre aux problèmes que rencontre le milieu rural japonais.

Pour ce faire, nous devons avant tout maintenir et étendre l'activité agricole de notre ferme en réinvestissant par exemple les terres agricoles abandonnées. 

Cette année, nous ouvrons un nouveau centre événementiel afin d'organiser des ateliers agricoles et des séjours sur la thématique du développement durable.

A propos du travail de volontaire

Les tâches que le volontaire sera amené à réaliser s'organisent autour de deux axes. 

Dans un premier temps, le travail agricole et manuel de la ferme : cultiver et entretenir de façon durable les différents champs (arrosage, désherbage, récolte, labourage, construction de barrières contre les singes et les cerfs) et rénover le bâtiment principal, ses annexes et aménager des différents espaces de la ferme.
Dans un second temps, en fonction de leurs compétences et de leurs envies, les volontaires sont encouragés à participer à l’organisation d’évènements (1) et à réaliser leurs propres projets (2) :

1. Préparer les infrastructures de la ferme à accueillir un évènement et aider à son encadrement (ex : créer un flyer, préparer à manger, aller chercher du bois et le couper la veille, vérifier l’accès aux chemins de randonnée, guider les participants puis animer les différentes activités…)

2. Participer à la promotion de l’association (création de vidéos, d’albums photos ou d’articles), à l’éco tourisme dans la vallée (cartographie, balisage d’itinéraires de randonnée) et à l’amélioration des infrastructures de l’association (construction d’un bac à compost, d’un stand de légumes ou de toilettes sèches). 

Enfin, si le volontaire reste plus d’un mois, il peut également participer à l’encadrement et à l’instruction des nouveaux volontaires. 

En fonction des saisons et des différents évènements que nous organisons, les activités diffèrent. Néanmoins, la semaine est toujours rythmée en deux temps : 

- Chuck et les autres membres de l’association se rendent à la ferme trois fois par semaine, le lundi, le mercredi et le vendredi. Ces jours-là, toute l’équipe s’occupe des tâches prioritaires : travaux de rénovation des clôtures ou des différents bâtiments, labourage des champs, récolte et préparation des légumes pour la vente, préparation du prochain évènement. 

- Le mardi et le jeudi, les volontaires effectuent de manière autonome les tâches qui leur ont été attribuées la veille : arrosage, désherbage, fertilisation des différents champs et entretien des clôtures (indispensables face aux attaques de cerfs et de singes qui déciment les récoltes).

En fonction du temps disponible ou des priorités, les volontaires peuvent ensuite se concentrer sur leurs projets personnels.

Le samedi et le dimanche sont des jours de repos. 

A propos du logement sur place

L'hébergement proposé aux volontaires est une ancienne cabane de garde forestier, une des dernières de la région, conservée grâce aux efforts du fondateur de Midori Farm ; Chuck Kayser. 

Elle possède une cuisine, une salle de bain avec baignoire et un petit salon avec une mezzanine où se trouvent les tatamis et les futons sur lesquels dorment les volontaires. 

La maison est fournie en eau par une rivière située en amont et chauffée au bois. 

La maison n'est pas équipée d'un boîtier Wi-Fi (mais le réseau cellulaire 4G est accessible). 

A propos de l'alimentation

Les repas sont principalement préparés par les volontaires avec les ingrédients et les légumes que nous leur fournissons. Il arrive que l'association prépare également des repas. 

Les courses sont réalisées une fois par semaine par l'association, en fonction des besoins des volontaires.

Les repas sont également fournis le week-end.

Localisation du projet

Kutsuki est une petite vallée typique de la région du Kansai, néanmoins riche de quelques originalités. 

Entourée de montagnes boisées et parsemée de hameaux et de sanctuaires shinto, elle est historiquement connue sous le nom de « Route du maquereau ».
Située entre les anciennes capitales impériales de Kyoto, de Nara et du port d'Obama (l’accès le plus proche à la mer du Japon), cette région autrefois très fréquentée pour le ravitaillement du maquereau est aujourd'hui, après la crise économique, démographique et l’exode rural, fortement dépeuplée.

La sociabilité des habitants n'en est cependant que plus forte : tout le monde se connaît très bien, les vieilles fermières n'hésitent pas offrir leurs légumes fraichement récoltés, le propriétaire du magasin le plus proche ouvre à la demande et en cas de perturbations météorologiques (typhon, montée des eaux...) tout le monde s’entraide.

Nous avons de très bonnes relations avec nos quelques voisins (fermier, chasseur et potier), et plus précisément avec le couple qui a encouragé Chuck, il y a neuf ans, à réinvestir les terres en friche que nous cultivons aujourd’hui. Ils ont été ravis de rencontrer tous les volontaires que nous avons eu jusqu’ici, les ont invité à dîner et à partager diverses activités avec eux (randonnée, visite à Obama, etc.).

Les autres habitants de la vallée sont les singes et les cerfs en surpopulation ici (tout comme dans le reste de l’archipel). Du printemps au début de l'automne, la population rajeunit avec l’arrivée des nombreux marcheurs ou cyclistes qui retracent l'ancienne route du maquereau, ainsi qu'avec l’arrivée des festivaliers du célèbre festival de Yamauto au mois d’août, une des plus vieilles communautés hippies du Japon.

A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

Comme indiqué précédemment, la vallée de Kutsuki propose de très nombreuses randonnées dans les montagnes boisées, de hameaux en hameaux, à travers rizières et sanctuaires le long de la route du maquereau. Une longue rivière qui parcours la vallée est fréquentée par de nombreux pécheurs et un centre dédiée exclusivement à la pêche est située à 5 kilomètres de la ferme. Les volontaires peuvent profiter de la rivière, explorer, à pied ou à vélo, les nombreuses cascades et les bassins qu’elle dessine.

L'été, deux festivals de musique se produisent dans la vallée et il est possible de visiter l'écovillage qui accueille le festival de Yamauto tout le reste de l'année.

Les deux villages les plus proches présentent également plusieurs intérêts : celui de Kutsuki possède l’une des rares sources d'eau chaude de la région, exploitée par le très populaire Tengu onsen dont les bains surplombent la vallée, idéal après une longue journée à la ferme.

Le second village, Ohara, prisé des Kyotoïtes, abrite de nombreux temples bouddhistes, dont le plus connu, le Sanzen-in, datant de l'époque Heian (VIIIe – XIIe siècles), classé « trésor historique ».

À une heure de route à l'est se trouve également le lac Biwa, le plus grand lac de l'archipel, idéal pour le camping et les sports nautiques.

Enfin, le week-end, si les volontaires souhaitent se rendre à Kyoto, nous leur proposons de les y emmener le vendredi en voiture et de les ramener le lundi. Ils peuvent ainsi librement explorer l'ancienne capitale impériale riche d'un patrimoine inépuisable…

Informations supplémentaires sur le projet

Les frais de participation sont de 200 euros et couvrent :

  • la nourriture ;
  • l'hébergement dans la maison des volontaires ;
  • l'électricité et le gaz ;
  • le savon bio pour la toilette et la lessive (le système hydraulique de la ferme est lié à deux rivières dont nous veillons à maintenir l'état naturel) ;
  • Les transports entre la ferme et Kyoto si les volontaires désirent s'y rendre le week-end.

A propos de l'organisation locale

Japan Cat Network is a Japanese organization founded by two American expats, who have been living in Japan, teaching English, and helping cats since 1993. They started the group after having had success helping the cats in their own community through Trap, Neuter, Return programs (TNR), a method of population control in which stray cats are trapped for neutering and returned to the location.
They are now managing a shelter for cats and dogs left alone after the different natural disasters touching Japan the last few years.


In order to reach its goals, the JCN uses Trap, Neuter, Return programs, education and awareness through festivals and events that promote animal welfare, like cat and dog meet-and-greets and distributing fliers about the benefits of spaying and neutering pets. They encourage networking, and answer questions, loan materials, and/or connect people to local animal welfare services available in their communities. Since the disaster of March 11, 2011, JCN has been in Fukushima to help with the rescue and recovery efforts for animals left behind in radiation-evacuated areas. They have established close ties with the communities of Kawamata and Namie and continue to travel there multiple times a week to provide life-sustaining food to abandoned cats and dogs, to pick up sick, injured, or Young animals, and to control the populations of the stray and feral cats through spaying and neutering.
Additionally, they have two no-kill animal shelters and a network of foster homes across the country.

A propos du travail de volontaire

Here is a rundown of the various tasks that volunteers participate while here : 

Each volunteer is expected to complete 5 hours of work per day, 5 days per week. The weekly schedule varies based on need. 
The shifts at the Kindergarten and Nursery vary but are usually Monday to Friday : 9:00 - 14:00.
Our role at the Kindergarten is to be an extra set of hands to play and interact with the kids. Regarding the Nursery, the volunteers are expected to help the teachers with the daily tasks. We want to fit in as seamlessly as possible. Take initiative. If you see something you can help with, jump in and help ;-) The teachers don't always ask for help when they need it (mostly due to a lack of English). But they really appreciate our help !
There is very minimal English spoken at the Nursery and Kindergarten, so if you have data on your phone, feel free to use it to help with communication. Please, do not use your phone for any other purpose while at school.
Some volunteers might also be asked to help with the Guest House program and the cat care/rescue if needed.

If you would prefer not to have the lunch, please be sure to tell the teachers ahead of time.
12:30 - 14:00 : After lunch, the kids nap until 15:00 so during that time the teachers will help you to put the kids asleep and after that give you some tasks to do, i.e. cleaning, cutting papers, hanging Drawings on the walls, …

A propos du logement sur place

Volunteers will live in a two-story house. The shelter is composed of 2 bedrooms with 4 beds in each room, 1 living room, 1 dinning room and 1 bathroom.
The house might be big but considering the number of persons living in there, it is relatively small. We ask that every effort be made to keep your personal belongings organized, and your sleeping space neat.

Everyone should try to be as clean as possible and leave the space as they wish to find it (e.g. washing dishes, picking crumbs after eating, cleaning the toilets, etc.). Additionally, every volunteer should
participate in a deep cleaning of the volunteer house. This is not included in your regular 5 hours/day as it is your responsibility to keep the volunteer house clean.


A propos de l'alimentation

We only offer some basic food, such as pasta, rice and condiments (salt, pepper, oil, soy sauce).
We do not offer any other kind of food such as vegetable or meat-product

>> prévoir un petit budget en plus pour faire des courses personnelles complémentaires donc ! ;-) 

Localisation du projet

The volunteer house is located in a traditionnal Japanese neighborhood. So there is a cultural aspect of living in a non-touristic area.
The interaction at the school is an opportunity to understand Japanese school system and the different priorities involved.
The animal welfare aspect shines a light into cultural aspect in Japan.


A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

Kyoto is a very touristic city with a lot of places to visit.
The closest touristic attractions are the Golden Pavillon, Arashima and the Toiei Studio Park.

A propos de l'organisation localeNICE (Never-ending International workCamps Exchange) est un ONG qui organise des camps et d’autres projets de service volontaire, essentiellement au Japon.
Ce projet est mis en place avec Sansonjuku, une association fondée en 1994. Il s’agit d’associer des gens des villes et des habitants locaux dans la préservation de la forêt et l’entretien des rizières. Sansonjuku et NICE ont entrepris de mettre en place des camps internationaux en 2008, mais en 2012, les plus fortes plus jamais enregistrées ont ravagé la région. Les inondations qui ont suivi ont fortement endommagé la région. Sansonjuku essaye d’engager la communauté et d’inciter les jeunes du monde entier à participer au programme afin de préserver la richesse de l’environnement et de raviver la région.

A propos du travail de volontaireEn rejoignant notre projet, vous nous soutiendrez dans nos démarches :
- Participez à la vie de fermes locales (production de riz et des légumes etc.) ; le nombre de jeunes fermiers locaux décroît d’année en année
- Participez aux activités de maintien de la forêt (entretenez les chemins, taillez des branches quand c’est nécessaire, etc.)
- Sensibilisez les populations aux problématiques environnementales et invitez-les à s’impliquer dans des projets (comme l’organisation de séminaires environnementaux et le soutien des événements de Sansonjuku)

A propos du logement sur placeVous serez logé dans le centre Egao no mori, qui a été une école primaire jusqu’en 2004. Les volontaires préparent leur propre nourriture.

Localisation du projet

Le projet est localisé au sud de la préfecture de Fukuoka, dans la ville de Yame, une petite localité entourée d’arbres et de rizières en terrasse. La ville se trouve à une heure de train ou de bus de l’aéroport de Fukuoka, à une heure trente en avion de Tokyo. Le train à grande vitesse connecte Tokyo et la grande gare la plus proche, Hakata, en cinq heures trente

.

A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

A propos de l'organisation locale

Kikuya Community Group (KCG) a été formé par les jeunes de la région pour penser à l'avenir de leur petit village. Ikata est célèbre pour sa production de mandarines, mais est confrontée à la dépopulation, au manque de travailleurs et au vieillissement de la société depuis que la plupart des jeunes gens quittent la ville. Ainsi, le nombre de fermes de mandariniers abandonnées augmente et la ville perd ses traditions, sa vie, ses coutumes et ses paysages. KCG espère vivement accueillir des volontaires pour faire en sorte d'animer la ville et de faire revivre les fermes.

A propos du travail de volontaire

Tâches possibles des volontaires :

  • récolte des mandarines ;
  • tondre l'herbe ;
  • soigner les arbres (en fonction de la saison) ;
  • apporter de l'aide au club local de jeunes ;
  • animer des activités au village.

A propos du logement sur placeLes volontaires seront hébergés à plusieurs dans des maison japonaise de style traditionnel (hommes et femmes séparés). Les repas sont à la charge des volontaires.

Localisation du projet

Le projet se déroulera sur la péninsule de Sata, entourée de la mer. La pêche est donc une activité très répandue. La communauté est assez petite (seulement 30 foyers). Le climat est tempéré mais l'hiver peu s'avérer assez froid.

A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

  • participer aux événements locaux ;
  • apprendre les coutumes locales ;
  • sightseeing ;
  • visites de lieux (sources d'eau chaude..).
