MIYAWAKI TRAINING MODULE
Miyawaki Method 2 Ways
Online training is to help individuals make a small patch of forest on their own.
Onsite training which will help individuals learn how to handle larger areas & projects.
Objective of the training is to help the participants learn the Miyawaki method by understanding:
- Standard Operating Procedures (through documents and photographs)
- The journey of Forestcreators (our expertise, experiences and challenges)
Terms and conditions:
- This training is offered selectively, based on a ‘Statement of Intent’ submitted to Forestcreators by people who are interested, followed by a phone/skype call. The selection will be based on background (personal and professional) of participants and scope of practical application of the training.

- Number of trainings offered per month are limited to 4/5.
- The training is not offered to large corporations or groups.
- Video based high speed internet essential.
- The training will have limited scope for outdoor/field work and is more theory based.

- The training is an interactive, conversation based collaborative exercise between the trainer(s) and the participant(s).
- The Miyawaki method challenges most conventional schools of thought on plantation and afforestation, hence participants are required to be extremely open minded.
- Forestcreators’s scope of work here is limited to remote guidance only.
Flow of information that will be shared during training:
- Introduction to the Miyawaki method; its advantages and achievements
- Sequence of Activities
- Preparations – Pre Forest Creation on site activities
- Understanding Soil and Amendments
- Species selection
- Organic Material mix(consumable and non consumable)
- How to prepare the Soil
- Forest creation (final execution)
- Maintenance and Monitoring
- Final wrap up Addressing key questions
Cost of Training:
- We are here to make the world a better place for our future generations. Online training is complimentary.
- If interested, send us your brief profile and a ‘Statement of Intent’ (150-200 words) on plant@Forestcreators.com Mention ‘Online Training’ in the subject line.
Invite an Forest creators representative who will stay with you on-site and help you create the demo patch.
How will this help you?
- You will practically implement everything .
- This first forest patch will be your “proof of concept” and could become the showcase project that helps you find more potential sites and opportunities to create more such forests.
- Identify improvement for future projects, for e.g., most suitable species, input costs, local suppliers and feasibility.
- Utilize practical knowledge and expertise of the Forestcreators representative present with you on-site.
- If the demo forest is being created in a region/city where Forestcreators has worked before, then you will get access to the available species lists, research/documentation done and supplier contacts.
Terms and Conditions:

- The final approval to on-site demo is subject to how well prepared the trainees are, in terms of, site-readiness, material, manpower and machine availability. The preparations will be vetted by Forestcreators before giving their approval to helping with the demo. This will be done over phone and email.
- Forestcreators’s involvement will be limited only to guidance and knowledge sharing. Actual creation of the demo patch will be supervised and led by the trainee under the supervision of Forestcreators.
