Last year, young farmers, non-farming youth and students from Japan and abroad started the organic production of rice in a field which has not been cultivated for a long time.
This year, more youths joined us and we worked together from rice planting to weeding …to harvest.
Everyone’s cooperation and enthusiasm made it a great harvest this season. To celebrate the successful harvest, we organized a concert in the rice field to appreciate the friendship that were formed and to praise each others’ hard work.
