Hi! My name´s Camila and I´m from São Paulo, Brazil. I´m doing my development traineeshep in Yilan County, Taiwan by AIESEC. Thanks LC INSPER for that experience!

I´m working in Toucheng Leisure Farm, a really ecological farm, that has a lot of things to do, specially learning about nature.

The Toucheng Leisure Farm is more than a simple hotel farm. The minority of people have awareness about the importance of the environment, but here everything is reused.

Water used by the hotel, kitchen and the animals, receive treatment before being disposed into the river/ocean again. All the rest of food and animal excrements goes to the plants. And it isn´t so simple, each plant needs a different type of nutrient for your growth, so this procedure must be done carefully.

And there´s even more: Bamboos are harvested for the materials used in DIY activities; fallen trees are transformed into wooden hammocks or tree houses; plates and chopsticks are washed and sterilized after use to avoid disposable dining wares.

Everything in here is just ecologically correct!!

In the next days, I´ll post more things about the farm and my experience in Taiwan! 😊
