Nature School Program: Rice Harvest Workshop 2017
Peace & Nature is revitalizing fallow fields with the support of farmers in Ozo, Kobe, growing organic rice without any harmful pesticides or fertilizers. After over six months of work, we will harvest the sun-ripened rice we planted in May. This will occur over two days. As Japanese and foreigners, let’s work together to promote safe food and the environment! Please try it!
*The October 7 workshop is canceled based on advice from local farmers about the weather.
We have added a September 23 workshop instead – please join us!
