Here, Shinano town Nagano is a hilly and mountainous area filled with the natural beauty of lush greenery and pure streams, surrounded by Mt. Kurohime and Mt. Iizuna.
To coexist with nature, the management of farm land is extremely important. If the amount of abandoned farm lands and untended forests increased, it would destroy the ecosystem. As a result, many negative effects, such as the increase of dangerous predators in the area, water shortages, and contamination of mountain streams will increase.
Workers in the field of agriculture are not only responsible for producing food, but also for maintaining land because it strongly affects the local environment from the crops to the water sources.
As the number or people working in the field of agriculture decreases, abandoned farm lands are increasing every year in the hilly and mountainous areas. We are responsible to preserve the gift of wild nature for the next generations.
