- Home description:
Hi, My name is zhaolin, we are a big family and live on a farm which is located in southwest China ,Sichuan province ,Mianyang city (the suburb of mianyang city). This farm is mainly runs by my uncle,and the most of my family members work on the farm .
We raise pigs and fishes on the farm as well as cultivate grapes , some vegetables and lots of flowers(currently the farm is not organic completely but that's the goal we are pursuing ) while those are not the only things we do to run this ecological farm, besides we do lots of work to restore the local ecosystem ranges from trees planting to lakes purifying . I'd say it is a tough work to do in today's China where more and more people focus on GDP increasing which is another word of money making without paying much attention on environmental protection and morality conservation . while we believe it's vital to keep a good relationship between man and nature, as that's the key for human's future development and our next generations' happy life, and that's why we choose to run this ecological farm instead of making everything on the farm into money.
Though facing with such a tough circumstance we insist doing the things we believe in with supporting from all of my family members and the locals , what's more we are lucky that we also get supporting from all over the world --The volunteers , who come from different parts of the world to do volunteering to help us make the farm more ecological and more beautiful , so we my family are not alone here in such a peaceful corner of China, we appreciate the volunteers' contribution through their hard work to the farm as well as different cultures and great ideas they brought us which enriches our mother culture and way to look the world ,so happy with the time we spent with volunteers.
In return , we try our best to push the farm to a place where volunteers could get close to nature , experience farm life and different cultures as well as friendship been formed .Hopefully we'd love to help them to see China from a different perspective compared with big cities .
