The opening event of Second Nature Farm

opening event

On Saturday, September 2023, we had a joyful and delicious time with everyone who participated in the opening event of Second Nature Farm.

The positive energy gathered from everyone who supported the project’s mission and purpose: to produce healthy food, preserve the ecosystem, and promote people’s healthy lives with balanced body, mind, and spirit. It generated an excellent magnetic field on the farm. It is still a tiny magnet, but we hope it will spread from participants to their friends and family, and the circle of people sharing the same thought will grow even more significant. We plan to hold various events to coincide with the changes of seasons, such as the winter solstice, spring equinox, summer solstice, and autumn equinox. We also look forward to starting an “Agroforestry Yoga Class” on this farm. We will keep you posted on the details through this website or e-mail to our members, so please stay tuned!
