Voice of participant

We introduce a part of the impression sent to grass-roots sericulture by people who participated.
It was my first time for silkworm farming and was worried, but I was relieved to hear during the explanation that we only have to return the white cocoons and that we are not obliged to turn all 100 silkworms into cocoons. I have come to love them and am sad to send the cocoons today, but I feel very relieved at the same time. I expect them to be used as silk threads and for many other purposes. It is exciting to imagine how they will be used. (by S)


We participated from the request of our children. They were drawn into examining the mysterious growth of silkworms, the difference in growth from the types of food, and the number of days it takes to become a cocoon depending on temperature and where they are placed, inside or outside. We believe they were able to feel the process of their own growth in the relation between food and growth. Thank you very much. (Aozora Nursery School)
