5ivePlanets ISH Market and Concert !


submitted by Lloyd Helferty

Dear Biochar Ontario members and friends (in Japan),

  Please refer to the attached Flyer ("Tirashi.PDF").

This flyer contains information about an upcoming event in Japan that is being held in celebration of the launch of the 5ivePlanets ISH, a registered NFP Japanese initiative (Headquartered in Yokohama), whose goal is to leverage both education and technologies that work in balance with the natural cycles of the earth to increase our capacity to provide for our collective children on the one and only planet we actually have.

The mission of 5ivePlanets is to ensure sustainable food and resource supplies for the Children of the Future through effective use of appropriate technologies and education.

The 5ivePlanets not-for-profit will be raising money through a Foundation to establish and embark on various projects that will include proof of concept demos of aquaponics systems and biochar-related humanitarian projects such as cutting edge urban agricultural techniques along with explorations of methods of utilizing Biochar for the decontamination of radioactive soil using "specialized natural fungi" and/or "phyto-active plants" with Biochar.

This flyer contains information about the following upcoming events:
1. The "Tohoku Tomodachi Market" takes place on Saturday and Sunday September 3 and 4, 2011 (from 10am Sat - 6pm Sun) at Queen Square Yokohama (Minato Mirai, Yokohama).
Over 50 companies from Tohoku will attend this two day market event to sell their products and promote Tohoku business recovery.    Website or Map:
