FarmAid Ginza
FarmAid Ginza is organized by NPO Ginza Honey bee Project located at 3-chome Ginza. It is an event for urban-rural exchange and is held four times a year.

In 2006, the Ginza Honey bee Project began beekeeping in Ginza. Tasting nature from the delicious honey and through enjoyable activities with friends and family, we realized that in the middle of the city we were learning how people and nature co-exist.

We do not know what is happening in the woodlands, mountain recesses or the oceans nor do we know who is endeavors to bring us food. FarmAid Ginza is a symposium where we all share these issues. To give agricultural producers enhanced opportunities, from 2008, we had booths where farmers could display and sell their produce.

Each time we also held honey bee tours of our rooftop beekeeping.
This year, on April 29, we are holding an English language Honey bee tour so people around the world could learn about FarmAid Ginza.

The English language honey bee Tour will touch upon the Ginza Honey bee Project, honey bees and greening of rooftops. Ginza has become greener as advocates made farms and “bee gardens” on the rooftop of their buildings. We aim to make the city a more enjoyable place by cooling down the Urban heat island with greenery.
On April 28th and 28th, delicious organic food directly from many producing areas will be sold and we hope you will have the chance to talk with the farmers that produced these fine foods.

Please do come and visit the honey bees and try the bee friendly food. By doing this you will support the farmers and make a contribution to the environment.
