FFTC Director Dr. Kuo-Ching Lin, Assistant Researcher Ms. Jennifer Lii and FFTC Secretary Ms. Chia-Chuan Chang recently flew to Hualien, for an ocular inspection    and exploration as part of the educational field trip in the forthcoming “International Symposium on Implementing the Satoyama Initiative" to be held on September 17-18 in Hualien. Thanks to Deputy Director Ta-Chi Yang and the staff of Hualien District Agricultural Research and Extension Station (HDARES), FFTC's partner in the said symposium, for acting as guides.

 

The visitors first stop was in Fuli Township where the Manna Organic store is located. There they learned how the local youths collaborated with the government in their struggle to develop their local products and how they managed to have a symbiotic relationship with their environment.

 

The second station which the group visited is the Cilamitay Tribe, where they learned about the tribe's history, and a visit to the construction of the water terraces through hydraulic engineering technology.

 

This was followed by a visit to Loshan Village where the group experienced the DIY of tofu making. The soybeans used in the DIY are the local breed developed 40 years ago by HDARES.

 

The fourth station which the group visited was the Jiaming Tea Garden, where they listened to the owners talk about the interdependence between ecology and economy and how they developed their business of utilizing small green leafhoppers to make honey-flavored black tea. They also tasted several varieties of teas there.

 

Finally, the group had dinner at the Shin-Liu Ecological Farm located in the Mataian Wetlands. This farm is an idyllic template for agro-tourism developed by the aboriginals in the area. Thanks to the enthusiastic assistance of HDARES for making this ocular trip possible.
