Volunteers will cut down trees and carry them out so that SATOYAMA forest can be kept in the healthy condition for biodiversity. Vols. need to use blades and sometimes machineries after the lecture on how to use them. Work is quite hard from morning to evening even in rain if it’s not so heavy. Vols. may take care of chickens raised by the free range farming and slaughter old chickens for eating by themselves. Sometimes, we may interact with mentally challenged people who work every day for the same things as you will do.
