Background As the world’s food problem grows, we recognize that making one’s own food is important in the22nd century, so our organic farm network partner has running small organic farm in their family. We come up with the idea to support them our volunteers’ hand and to eat fresh food from our farm “We grow what we eat, We eat what we grow”. Moreover, volunteer will learn to share various planting ways between Asia and western styles from volunteers.
Working Volunteer will work in organic farm with the family. Volunteers learn and share organic farm through local agriculture philosophy. Volunteers will prepare soils, plant and take care of plants by watering. They will also eat organic vegetables from organic farm.
