NPO Peace and Nature produces rice without using pesticides in OZO, Kita-ku, Kobe.  This year, to prevent the spread of coronavirus, we postponed the rice planting workshop, but considering the recent situation, we would like to schedule it in June. Food shortages are of particular concern this year, and we want to keep growing rice, the staple food of Japan, and provide harvested rice to children and their families who are having trouble eating due to the effects of the new coronavirus. We would like to invite all of you who support us on a regular basis to participate in the hands-on workshop. In addition, depending on the situation, it will be implemented under infection control measures. Please note that the content may be changed depending on the extension of the policy of the government or local government.
14 days from June 1st (Mon) to June 14th (Sun)
Please contact us in advance by email or by email 3 days prior to the desired date.
In case of rain, the event will be held / cancelled at 7:00 am on that day.
