We all have particularly intense memories from our past that endure even when we become adults.

I think farming experiences that provide children with hands-on activities away from the city, classrooms, and books might turn out to be among those happy and intense memories.

I hope the time spent for edu-farming is remembered not just as a learning experience but also a touching experience through which to feel the value of agriculture on people’s skin.
