Wer organisiert das Projekt?

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!
