Onion Harvest 2018 in Ozo
Japanese and international participants working together to grow onions without agricultural chemicals!
Today we’re cutting back the grass in a fallow field and harvesting Awaji onions!
We planted Awaji onion seedlings last November and raised them without any agricultural chemicals or pesticides. Now it’s time to harvest these safe and delicious onions. The onions pop right out of the ground – feels really satisfying! Japanese and international participants will enjoy this event together. We welcome you to join us.
