About the local hosting organizationThis workcamp has been organized with Association of Regional Activation in Katsuura for the first time. Katsuura is one of famous villages in Japan for Japanese oranges. However, the number of farmers have been getting decreased these years, so that local people need hands of motivated people. They are also encouraging and supporting young people to move to rural area from urban area.
