Project Description

Farmhouse Restoration Project in Ozo(空き家再生・江戸プロジェクト)

1. Food sufficiency rate in Japan is very low 39% (among the lowest in developed nations)
2. Many rural farms are abandoned
3. Children have few opportunities to experience nature.

We are renovating an abandoned house in Ozo, Kita-ku, Kobe and bringing it to life as a space to learn about food and the environment. With a collapsing roof it is currently unable to be used as-is. In addition to repairs we will add an open kitchen and toilets for a better learning environment.
