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 partner has come up with the idea to support volunteers’ food budget and to eat fresh food from our farm. Moreover, volunteer will learn to share various planting ways between Asia and western styles from volunteers.
