peoples here just natives camping for short period to hunt and fish . the
place was so abondant with wildlife that the white peoples could not believe
their eyes and in a few years this place is catching up quickly with the
devastation that arised way earlier in time in your region and later in

incredible reminder of what nature in its full potential can achieve .

compromises helped me to share my ideas to the people that have opposite
ideas and behaviour about agriculture or health for exemple.

- Dear Ingrid & Jean-Claude,
Thank you for introducing us to your vision & to your family.
Have you been reading
<http://www.ecosyn.us/ecocity/Proposal/Palaces_For_The_People.html> ? It was
introduced here by Jamie some while back. At first it may seem that the Palaces
to have little to do with Fukuokan life choices; the founder / inventor /
designer / engineer of the Palaces did not at first find much connection with
the Fukuoka newsgroup members who looked into the Palaces group. As with any
two things compared, the more the similarities are emphasized, & the goals
focused, the more any two important ideas resonate with each other.
The intense market farming on the outskirts of the community in the Palace
plan is, *at least at first*, not the same as the Fukuokan farming / gardening
option that becomes ever-more possible in the personal lives & personal space of
the resident families of the Palace. Although some individual farmers may chose
one way, some another, some might chose to compare several methods or
combinations by allowing for different ways among their fields.
From Fukuoka-san: "The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops,
but the cultivation and perfection of human beings." The Palaces will be, as
your community will be, built by some who are seekers of ultimate crop growing,
& by some who are seekers of the fruit of cultivated human beings, in the
naturally fertile growth-environment.
Fukuoka personifies an element needed for perfection of civilization, the
Palaces are needed for survival of the species (ours & others).
