Finally it comes to the day of harvesting for our second re-farming campaign! In year 2015, the rain season did not come on time and our rice seedlings were grown under a lack of water. In the end, we did not have a high crop yield. Ironically, there was a heavy rain in the morning of our harvesting day, and many of our volunteers were stuck in the farm during the weed clearance. Finally, with joint-effort, we had overcome the challenges and made the best preparation for the next around of sowing. We may have faced the down side of farming, but it is also a memorable experience for us to understand the challenges that farmers are facing everyday and also a good reminder for us to treasure our food even more.
We are expecting to sow the seedlings again next month. Hope that we can learn from our experience and strike our goal this time! Please visit here to learn more about our re-farming campaign last year.
