Monica would like to know more about Russia.
Fall is the time for gathering potatoes. There were too many rains in Khabarovks region this fall. Too difficult for machines to pick potatoes from the very wet soil. Local people were invited to help. Volunteers can take potatoes home as well. 'Let's save the harvest together!' is the motto of the action. Students also help. The gathered potatoes are for hospitals and orphanages as well. 5,000 people took part in the action last week. Volunteers have to work fast, the first autumn frosts might start at the weekend. Their contribution into the harvest rescue is immense.
It can also serve as a Listening exercise =)
