UMass Extension is seeking 20 homes in the Amherst area to host 20 Japanese visitors July 16-18. The visitors will be attending a program on “Organic Farming and Natural Foods” as part of the 14th Japan-America Grassroots Summit. None of the participants are professional farmers but each has a very strong interest in this topic.
Hosts are welcome to participate in all of the tours and events but are asked to provide several meals and some transportation; spend Sunday morning with their Japanese guest at a local cultural or entertainment site and join other summit participants for closing festivities the afternoon of July 18. The guests will be leaving the following morning.
