My name is Jaive. I am a Papua New Guinea writer and this is my special garden. I call it My Amazing Paradise.
Papua New Guineans have been practicing gardening for thousands of years.
We were practicing agriculture long before many cultures in the world.
Gardening is an important activity in our lives, even in these mordern times. Many of us have sweet potato gardens, bananna plots, cabbage patches, corn feilds, mandarins trees and more.
Alot of us have special gardens where we collect different species of plants from all overand grow in our plots.
When I was small I collected bananna suckers from all over my mothers province and planted them on our land and land that belonged to my relatives.
They were all kinds. Sweet fat banannas, long sweet banannas, cooking banannas, wild banannas, banannas that colored your urine, banannas that you couldnt eat..many, many types.
As I have grown up, I have come across others with special gardens.
Some collect trees, others collect flowers and orchids, while others grow all kinds of sweet potato and some just love showing you the immense variety of peanuts in their garden plots.
This blog is like one of these special gardens.
I am collecting stories from all over Papua New Guinea and putting them all here, on this online garden.
So that you may wander through and be inspired and help these stories grow, to reach new audiences, new generations and new gardeners.
But like all gardens, there will come a time when it all ends and the lands is left to grow wild again. After the last province is visited, I will share the last post and stop travelling.
So Please Enjoy.
