Kurogi 2 (Fukuoka)
Description: Organized together with Sanson-Juku since 2008 (starting with 80 days workcamps and then, did the short term workcamps after a few years). They maintain the forest and rice fields by the exchange programs between cities and the country side since 1994. In spite of the town’s natural heritage, depopulation (especially of youth) is a serious problem here similarly to many other parts of the country side in Japan. We aim to help with nature conservation and to activate the area through workcamps.
Type of Work: We will work in the forests doing activities such as helping mushroom farm, making firewoods and cutting bushes in maintenance of the forest by which we can contribute to nature conservation through global voluntary power. We also support local tea farmers.
Study Theme: Effective cases of activated depopulated areas in each country. Bring some info..!
Accommodation: Building in abandoned school. Meal will be cooked by Volunteers. Sleeping bag is not necessary.
Language: English (Japanese is also welcomed!)
Requirements: Interest in nature protection & exchange with a community. Adaptability to enjoy a simple lifestyle!
Approximate Location: Southern part of the Fukuoka prefecture. The Kurogi town is 135,49 km2. There are so many tee trees and terraced paddy fields.
