I run a small inn at remote mountain. I grow a few but various types of vegetables and plants just in front of the inn. I grow them mostly by natural farming. also the edible wild plants are abundant around here.
I think how I can leave the better future for posterity and then how I can recover the environment. I plan and run various events for experiences, intercourse, and co-education in a theme 'circulation'. I am wishing that I meet people who are different to me, learn together, and make one memorable page on our life journey.
【Currently very limited chances, helpers are already mostly assigned throughout 2024!】
I am busy for the job at the inn on the busy season, so it could be better that you come in the off-season if you would like to stay in calm and with slow pace. The experience you will have includes the farm work and various work in countryside, other than the work for maintaining the inn and welcoming the guests when they stay. I am looking forward to seeing you and spend a memorable time together.
