Two kinds of items are going to be sold from little open-air stalls in this event.
One is freshly spring-time honey which is made from locally honeydew produced by “SATOYAMA HACHIMITSU”.
The other is bean risotto which is made from locally sourced ingredients. Tranlogue produced this product; we engaged in the product development, naming, design of the package and also merchandising.

 

 

A workshop of rice planting by handwork will be held this coming April, 2019 in Chiba prefecture, Japan.

You can see previous workshops on the following pages.

 

Let's learn rice planting in advance!
A length of rice seedling is about 20 cm.

Plant five rice seedlings at a spot.
Some textbooks instruct to plant three at a spot. But we make it a practice to plant five so as to avoid failure.

Plant rice seedlings in a depth of 5 cm (the length of second joint of a finger) under the soil holding base of seedlings.
Web_nae_good_01_2_c_en

 

Good example: Make a bundle of seedlings and plant vertically.
If most part of a leaf is out of water, rice plants can grow faster by getting lots of sunlight.
Web_nae_good_02_c_en

 

Bad example: Scattered seedlings are lodged by wind or water wave.
If seedlings grow at a tilt, they become an encumbrance to getting rid of weeds.
Web_nae_bad_01_c_en

 

Bad example: Must not plant most part of seedlings under the soil.
Rice plants grow extremely slowly or die if seedlings are planted deeper than the depth of their root and lower part of stalk under the soil.
