Rice Planting in Korea

Last month we visited the natural farm of Seonghyun Choi (최성현) for his annual rice planting day. It was a physically tiring few days, but it’s always mentally refreshing to spend this kind of time in deep connection with nature.

In planting, Seonghyun Choi uses the method from Kawaguchi Yoshikazu, sowing seeds in a protected seedbed, then transplanting baby rice plants to the main field. It’s all done by hand, and a lot of hands are needed during the busy planting time. Fortunately Seonghyun Choi has many friends all around Korea. Every busy season they come and help him very gladly.

Here are some photos from the rice planting. Enjoy!
