How about a beloved local delicacy โ€” a cultivated strawberry variety preserved an d shared with the world through Japanese farming techniques? Farming has a nd continues to serve as a vital facet of the Pacific Northwestโ€™s Japane se American community\, persisting since the early 20th century despite th e racially-motivated laws and policies which threatened many familiesโ€™ l ivelihoods.\n\nJoin us on August 19th\, as Dee Goto and Kay Longhi discuss their histories with Japanese American farms in Washington.
