Local Activities to Nurture Richness
The Association to Talk About Ideal Life
How do seniors face their old age and how do they want to live and die? It began with such questions. Opening lectures by inviting medical professionals of our city while talking about own illnesses, we could finally awake the truth; “The person does not live alone but lives in the connection with many people, and he dies as well”. As long as your environment isn’ t ideal, you can’ t die in peace. We are opening a “Health for Living” in which you can feel free to consult about things such as health and care for parents.
Hatake Gardening Park in the City
It is also the base of SUZUKA FARM, and is a field in which local people can enjoy farming life. The “Let's Go to Hatake, Eat at Hatake” project is an exchange opportunity in which you can sow seeds, grow, eat as well as you gather close to children and seniors throughout the year. There is a plaza in the park, and there are furnaces, a boiler, a well, an eco-toilet, and some other facilities, in which you can cook, eat, play, and relax.
Suzuka Satoyama Forestry
“Suzuka no Satoyama”, a Japanese traditional forest area close to human living, started to play one of roles for the sustainable society. That is a space in which children can play happily, mowing undergrowth, making swings in the trees. It has been developed based on the wishes of young people of Suzuka Community. Senior generations gathered to enjoy charcoal grilling and some others like children. As the relationship deepened, we have began to receive support from the local community and government. Nowadays with the cooperation of the city government, we have started caring for the thick forest in the city, and then we make charcoal with the cut wood, make use of charcoal in the living, and promote the use of charcoal in the living, Energy circulation with the region is progressing.Place for learning
