The primary objective is to provide agricultural counseling for aboriginal villages in Hualien and Yilan. We taught our cultivation techniques after considering the unique aboriginal culture of the villages, the characteristics of the local industry, and the natural environment. In recent years, we published a total of 14 books related to aboriginal culture and hosted four seminars associated with aboriginal culture and plant applications.
With organic production set as the development direction, we actively advised the aboriginal farmers to recultivate by organic cultivation. We not only established communication platforms for various villages and organized counseling teams, who collaborated with agricultural business management consultants to visit aboriginal production and marketing classes to provide diagnostic counseling, but also actively provided education and training courses to facilitate the development of the aboriginal agricultural industry.
In addition, we taught the aborigines to combine natural ecology with organic agriculture to develop a unique and organic tribal-based recreation industry.
Villages such as Leshui and Yingshi Village (Datong Township, Yilan County), Lunshan Village (Zhuoxi Township, Hualien County), Bangcha Village (Guangfu Township, Hualien County), Chimei Village (Ruisui Township, Hualien County), and Gangkou Village (Fengbin Township, Hualien County) have filed for organic certifications. These villages have been provided counseling on the cultivations of medicinal plants, oil tea, food grains, aboriginal vegetables, and agricultural product processing.
In addition to introducing organic knowledge to the villages, we advised the aborigines on growing feed corn in compliance with the fallow land policy. We developed hedgerows and ecological engineering methods to facilitate organic cultivation for the Lajihagan and Shinshe villages, promoting organic agricultural and tourist industry development in the villages. We helped the Siji-Nanshan village shift from growing vegetables at high elevations to growing highpriced flowers, substantially increasing tribal revenue and output.
We provided counseling to over 30 aboriginal villages in recent years. As a result of the joint effort among our organization, the farmers, and civil societies, 11 of the villages including Lunshan have begun to exhibit exceptional agricultural development and are currently being used to provide an example for other villages to emulate and to persuade neighboring villages to join tribal agricultural transformation and improvement.
