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. I think the way to save the farm and land that are contaminated is this "clean-up" right now. It reduce radiations 50 to 60%, but they have to really remove the soil and trees and everything contaminated heavily. But, it does remove radiation from the land. The farmers are desperate to remove and reduce radiations from the land right now. If you can help from this angle, it will be tremendous support for farmers. While the professors are doing this, several farmers stopped by and asked them to do same thing to their land too. But it is really hard to clean up all the contaminated land in Fukushima.
