   Summary           Let's preserve beautiful green tea farm in Kyoto!

                     Organized together with E-Wasa
                                              E Wasa (EW) from 2015. It means good Japanese tea and is a local NPO
                     created in 2012 to organize agricultural events, support people who live in Wazuka as new tea

                     think of the future of their small village. Ikata is famous for its main industry of mandarins farming,
                     but has been facing depopulation, lack of workers and aging society since most of young people
  Background
                     leave the town. So, the number of abandoned mandarin farms is increasing and the town is losing
                     its tradition, life, custom and scenery.
                                                     scenery. KCG strongly hopes to host vols. to work together to animate
                     the town and revive the farms.
