Tambo Art article at Metropolis

Sammu's rice field art project in full color.
My time at various farmers markets around Tokyo and Yokohama have afforded me the opportunity to meet many a great farmer. And like farmers everywhere, they are creative, community-minded folks doing good work that reverberates beyond their fields, crops and customers.

Tomohito and Nagisa Minowa are one such pair. Passionate farmers, they are also passionate members of Sammu, their community in Chiba. A recent rice field art project they helped get going has brought together people from all across the community, and will they hope, bring some new international friends out, too. Read the full text of the article here, and then venture on out to Sammu.
