Shige’s Gift: Sowing Seeds for the Future
What would you do if a perfect stranger gave you $1,000 to invest in the future? That’s what happened to a farmer in Hiroshima Prefecture who offers agricultural training on his YouTube channel. An 87-year-old benefactor sent him her COVID-19 Special Cash Payment, which was provided by the government to residents in Japan to tide them over in this difficult time. She was hoping he’d spend it to help the country. Now the farmer is seeking ways to use her generosity to share the joys of raising vegetables with people throughout Japan.
