Volunteers and Projects

Hello Farm Organics is committed to continue supporting Northern Japan communities effected by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. A percentage of our crops are donated annually to communities in Tohoku such as Fukushima Prefecture. This is accomplished through the help of Sakanotochu (On The Slope) NPO in Kyoto, Share The Love For Japan project, and Osaka YMCA International School. Next 2014 growing season, Hello Farm Organics will continue to send healthy, safe, and organic vegetables North.

Here is one of our winter vegetable boxes we sent to a Kindergarten in Fukushima in December, 2013.

Volunteers are always welcome at the farm. We are now a registered WWOOF farm through the World Wide Organization of Organic Farms. Registering with WWOOF Japan is ideal if you are looking to stay for longer periods of time on organic farms around Japan. You can register with WWOOF Japan through their main page at  http://www.wwoofjapan.com/main/index.php?lang=en

Alternatively, if you are local and live in the Kansai area (Kyoto, Nara, Kobe, Osaka) please contact Hello Farm directly if you wish to volunteer for a day or two. 

Here are some of our outstanding first WWOOFers and volunteers from the 2013 growing season.

    Hello Hello Farm-

    My husband and I are interested in volunteering on your farm for a day or two. We live in Uji and wonder what weekend would be the best time to come up and help out.

    We are only free on weekends.

    We love what you are doing!

    Thank you-

    Amy and Nobuto
