Leaf-Business by aged women in rulal village : Asian Forum for Solidarity Economy 2009

See on Scoop.itThinking differently plus

Kristin Newton‘s insight:

Here is a town in Japan that has transformed the lives of its elderly residents by creating a "leaf business". It’s a huge success. The maple and persimmon trees that once annoyed the farmers when their fallen leaves blocked the streets suddenly changed to "treasure trees" which help them to earn their living. The translation is quite charming but the idea is great.
