Higashiiya, Miyoshi city, Tokusima pref. Leisure:Welcome party by locals.
In Miyoshi City, Iya area, many local region’s original cereal were made using steep land from long time ago. However, due to the declining birthrate and the aging of the population, three years ago, it was almost impossible for region to keep growing original cereal. Therefore, local volunteers gathered to inherit cultivation technology from seniors.
Union members are 12 people in 50s to 80s. Mainly they work for cultivating of original cereals in the fields of their homes and communal fields.
However, cultivation and harvesting of original cereals is a field of steep slopes, which is difficult to mechanize and is a time-consuming task for them. In order to protect the conservation of native species and the livelihood of Iya, the power of everyone is necessary.
Positive attitude, a willingness to work hard and communicate with local people!
