Rice-planting event【Japan】

On 19th May, a rice-planting event was held in Ichijima-cho, Tamba City. This kind of event had been organized in the past few years, but SEEDS Asia joined it this year for the first time to call for participation from a wider range of people. Families from different cities joined the activity, and it was overwhelming to hear kids’ voices of joy stepping into the paddy barefoot, in front of concrete-covered mountains (restoration works done after the torrential rain disaster in 2014). The participating families appreciated nature and tasty food in the City.
