グリーンフラスコさんの紫トウモロコシ

大好きなグリーンフラスコさんに、フェアトレードのセミナーでお邪魔して、エクアドルの話をさせていただいた。参加者は、お菓子作りの職人さんで、職場でフェアトレードの食材を使ったことをきっかけに参加されたり、国内の、特に林業に着目したフェアトレードをやりたい人だったり、何年も前にフェアトレードに関わるボランティアをされた方だったり、カフェで働いていてフェアトレードの豆を使いたかったり、ネパールの絵を輸入したい方だったりと、みんな素敵な方ばかりで、逆にこちらが1時間半ずつ話を聞きたいくらいだったのだが、インタグコーヒーを飲みながらみなさん熱心に話を聞いていただいた。

グリーンフラスコは、アロマテラピーやハーブ関連の商品で、『緑の医学』という一つの新しい文化を提案するお店。自由が丘店に何度か普通にお買い物に行ったことがあったが、気持ちがいい。ニョキニョキの緑に囲まれた建物、お店に漂うアロマの香りと、店長の八林さんや高坂さん、長谷川さんなど、スタッフの方々の心地のよい佇まい。植物と一緒の空間で働いていると、良い考えが浮かぶだろうし、波長もよくなるんだと思う。

代替医療やハーブの本が揃った、面白い本棚はかなり必見!私が「ハチドリ計画」のハチドリの話をすると、グリーンフラスコ社長の林真一郎さんは、「カチャマイ茶」(アルゼンチンの薬剤師ドン・グレゴリオがアンデスに育つ6種のハーブを独自の処方でブレンドしたハーブティー)というお茶にまつわる、ゆっくりなロバの神話の話をしてくださった。林さんによると、ハーブを扱うには、先住民が持っている知恵と、科学的なデータが、両方とも同じように重要だという。フェアトレードを考える上でも、売れるもの、欲しいものを作ってもらうだけでなく、表現や、染色、食べ方など、現地の人の尊敬すべき暮らしや伝統と、そこでつくる商品がどうつながるかの視点が重要だ。そこに、商品開発の大きなヒントがある場合もあるし、逆にものを作ることが土着の文化や伝承を掘り起こす可能性もあると思う。

今日の帰宅後、いつもは普通に煎じて飲む紫トウモロコシのパウダーで、『チチャモラーダ』を作ってみた。林檎とバナナを一緒にコトコト煮だす。昨日お聞きした話では、静岡に住むとても面白いおじいさんが、この紫トウモロコシを育てていらっしゃるという。紫トウモロコシはアントシアニンが豊富でめちゃくちゃ眼に良いらしい。おじいさんのお話も、ゆっくり聞きたかったな。

SWcメンバーの、理絵ちんは経理や在庫の管理で、ゆりかさんはweb更新で、目を酷使することが多い。明日は、3人そろうミーティングがあるので、ハチドリ印の水筒に入れてこれを持っていきます!

My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post's to be just what I'm looking for. can you offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn't mind producing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome blog!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

I've been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

I do believe all the ideas you've offered in your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for beginners. Could you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
