Episode Description:

BV 13-02 - Organic Japanese Farm

Brethren Volunteer Service has just completed the training of its 300th unit of volunteers. Since its beginnings in 1948, nearly 8,000 volunteers have accepted placements in projects serving human need, advocating for justice, working for peace and assisting to care for the Creation. Volunteers have accepted assignments in the United States as well as about 15 countries, worldwide.

"Brethren Voices" host, Brent Carlson on one of his travels to Japan, interviews BVS Volunteer, Rachel Buller of Homer, Georgia. Rachel is the first BVS'er to serve at the Asian Rural Institute in Nasushiobara, Japan. The institute teaches sustainable organic farming to the grassroots leaders of marginalized countries. They come to the institute from many different countries for the 9-month-training. At the heart of the program is the concept of 'Foodlife' -- a term designed to recognize and value the Interdependence between life and the food that sustains all of life.

The Asian Rural Institute is one of two BVS projects in Japan. BVS volunteers also serve at the World Friendship Center in Hiroshima, Japan, advocating for a world without nuclear weapons.
