Students at the school study organic farming skills and engage in
agriculture training to remove the bad habits of being indolent and have
working attitude of diligence. This will help them better adapt to the
society in further study or employment after leaving the school.
After soil preparation, soil and water quality inspection, we understand
how pollutions are from to meet basic elements of planting—sunshine,
water and soil. We have organic fertilization and diatomite, remove
insects with enzyme and plant various sweet grasses, vegetables, fruits and
flowers. Ripe organic vegetables and fruits will be foods for our students.
Sweet grasses can be made into tea or fragrance in baking class or make
office and classrooms a better place.
We train our students to treasure the hometown and pay attention to
environmental protection to experience the way of you get consequences
from what you do. Life does not stop. Students shall encourage
themselves regardless of earlier mistakes. Once they leave the school, they
can be confident and do good deeds to the society.

VII. Implementation steps
The major purpose of organic planting is to return to nature and restore
the lands to the original status. The preparation includes soil and water
source analysis before planting.
A. Soil analysis
We had soil samples on 14 August from the two classes and sent to Taoyuan District Agricultural Research and Extension Station, COA, Executive for inspection. The results on 4 September show that content of lead and zinc is too high and organic planting is not possible (Annex I for inspection report).
B. Water source analysis
We sent underground water sample to Environment Protection Bureau, Taoyuan County Government on 23 September 2009. Inspection report on 6 October 2009 shows the water was normal (inspection report in Annex II).
C. Soil improvement program
We bought qualified soil after inspection for vegetables, sweet grasses, fruits and flowers and expected to cover current planting land with 20 cm thick (around 75 cubic meters) qualify soil.
We arranged soil, added organic substances, planned water supply and
drainage facilities, and planted organic vegetables and plants in season, with
good adaptation and fighting against blight.
