women visiting demonstration plot

Among these self-organized women, we saw the starting point of our campaign. In July, we invited them to our first demonstration plot. They dressed up just like they would for square dancing—a sign that they attached great importance to the opportunity to learn and enjoy themselves together. At our “Organic Farming 101” mini-lecture, they listened and observed with close attention, never hesitating to raise their questions. They mentioned their interest in public lectures and learning opportunities on organic farming techniques. Through informative, fun and engaging activities, not only can we cultivate communities, but we also get the opportunity to stay engaged in conversations centered around people, nature, and our collective well-being.
