Description: This workcamp has been organized with a Non-profit organization for the study of producing organic Japanese tea since 2001. There are some farmers who produce organic tea in Wazuka town. The situation of organic farming within Japan is still very challenging, so that getting help from volunteers is important. The brand of the tea in Wazuka is getting famous and the farmers are hoping that this tea will make this rural area famous enough to invite tourists. Volunteers will also learn about the history of tea in Japan!
Type of Work: Volunteers will help tea farmers to take care of organic farms. Weeding is one of the most important and needed works. We will also organize one day event in Wazuka for cultural exchange such as cooking and sharing international meals, playing games, and music, etc. The event will be a chance to interact with local people and make them open-minded to international relationships.
Study Theme: Volunteers will get knowledge of tea farming and also tea processing.
Accommodation: Volunteers will stay public house. Meals will be cooked by volunteers by turns. Sleeping bag is necessary.
Language: English (Japanese is also welcomed!)
Requirements: Interested in Japanese culture, positive attitude to work outside in hot weather
Approximate Location: The most southern part of Kyoto prefecture, close to Nara prefecture.
