Below is the latest email message from Junko Kajino (filmmaker with Ed M. Koziarski for "Uncanny Terrain") who is currently in Japan helping the organic farmers in and near Fukushima.
Hi Phiya, How are you doing?
We shot "clean-up radiations" from organic farm yesterday with several professors and volunteers. It was extremely hard work and very difficult. There are many "clean-up" projects are going on in fukushima right now.
We have identified our first SOS-Japan (Save Organic Suppliers) organic farmer in need of assistance thanks to the efforts of Ed M. Koziarski and Junko Kajino (see http://www.uncannyterrain.com). Mr. Hiroaki Yoshida, an organic rice farmer in Fukushima, whose farm is 45 miles from the crippled nuclear power plant, may not be able to sell his rice this year due to fears over radiation, and has no where to turn for help!
