■ What is Tsukuba Peony Garden?

Despite being a 40-minute drive from Tokyo, this garden, which has a rich natural landscape that makes it even more popular for kingfishers, has a beautiful mortar-like landscape. It is the world’s largest garden of peony and peony that grows 60,000 strains of 800 species in total. Some of them are 150-year-old stocks and rare species only found here. All of these vast lands are managed by pesticide-free farming and enzyme farming, and the minds and techniques of the earthworkers and their unique farming methods are attracting attention from specialists and enthusiasts alike.

■ Under construction of soil through "Thoroughbred horse-fun composting"!

In our garden, which has been practicing completely pesticide-free and enzyme farming for more than 20 years, we jointly conducted the “Thoroughbred Compost Ecosystem Project” with the Faculty of Agriculture, Ibaraki University and Megumi Daichi (Ami-cho, Inashiki-gun, Ibaraki Prefecture). We are promoting. Miura is famous for its thoroughbreds, but it takes a lot of money to treat horse buns, and it is thought that rainwater penetration of the components of horse buns during the composting process is one of the causes of water pollution in Kasumigaura. I came. In our garden, we succeeded in composting horse buns for a short period. When actually used by farmers, the yield and quality of vegetables were improved, the flowers of peony and peonies were also large in this garden, the flowering period was long and the coloring was good. The commercialized compost “Thoroughbred Miho” is now sold not only in our garden but also in local home centers.

Thoroughbreds are subject to strict doping tests and are eating foods that do not contain antibiotics, so their horses are safe and secure. It has a high mineral content and maintains a good balance of microorganisms, resulting in a strong soil. As a result, pests and diseases are reduced in the fields, so that they can be grown without pesticides (reduced pesticides) like our garden. Thoroughbred Miho is characterized by its immediate effect and soil improvement effect. Since it can be composted in a short period of time, it does not require a huge composting center, and is now attracting attention as an environmentally sustainable sustainable regional agricultural system.
