Mi Ta Zu, which means “family” in Burmese, remained a seed in search of fertile soil until late 2017 when a local family offered us a piece of unused land attached to their farm just 2 kilometers outside Bagan. We spent several months observing and learning about daily activities on a traditional Burmese farm in the dry zone, to identify opportunities for deeper cooperation and knowledge sharing. After many long evenings of discussion and several small trials, we believe that we are on the right path to combine traditional organic farming methods with our understanding of modern, sustainable agroecology and environmental management practices.
