‘99 Autumn Gardening and Planting Festival

Date Posted: 1999-10-19

Since October 8, the ’99 Okinawa City Gardening and Planting Festival has been going on at a special site located at the Okinawa City Agricultural Training Center in Chibana. The festival’s official theme is “Plant greenery around your life”, and it will run through Sunday.

The Okinawa City Plant and Flower Producers’ Union and the Okinawa Times newspaper are sponsoring the festival with the purpose of promoting tree planting. The president of the Okinawa City Plant and Flower Producers’ Union, Takeji Okumatsu, expressed the hope in a recent interview that activities - including this festival - would have a positive impact on Okinawa’s localities and help make the Year 2000 G-8 Summit a success.

At the Festival, people can buy plants and flowers at low prices. Stalls are selling special Okinawan products such as brown sugar. One hundred plants will be presented to first 100 visitors on Saturday and Sunday.

The Okinawa Times newspaper will hold a Seasonal Plant Sketching Contest as a special fall greenery event. The participants for the contest should draw a picture of a plant on display at the festival and send it to Okinawa Times Chubu Branch Office with name, address, age, sex, telephone number and occupation or the name of the school. All participants will be awarded a prize by the Okinawa Times.

The drawings must be sent to The Okinawa Times, Chubu Branch Office, 2-5-3 Goya, Okinawa City, 904-0021 Okinawa, attn. to: Autumn Plant Festival
