Japan Society Presents:

Bridging Countries with Organic Farming


With Speaker Yoko Takemura from Assawaga Farm

Yoko Takemura lived and worked in countries all over the world before moving to Brooklyn, NY, where she joined a community garden and discovered the wonders of growing vegetables. It wasn't long before she began applying for apprenticeships on organic vegetable farms outside of the city. Now she and her husband have started their own certified organic vegetable farm in Northeast Connecticut, where they grow a diverse range of vegetables and mushrooms, with a special emphasis on Japanese heirloom and traditional varieties. Having worked on farms both in the US and Japan, they aspire to adopt a mix of farming practices and customs.
