Wasteland transformed into zero-waste, closed-loop farm

文字-A A +A

The island of Zhongliao in Taoyuan’s Daxi is covered with leek fields. However, the proprietors of one local farm in the area are not satisfied with simply growing herbs. Vanilla Ueno Park has transformed its herbs into natural insecticides. The smell of herbs can drive away farm pests, allowing farmers to dispense with pesticides and artificial fertilizers and build natural organic farms.

In order to achieve the sustainable development of the environment, Vanilla Ueno Park reuses all agricultural waste. It has created a closed-loop system incorporating agriculture, aquaculture, and animal husbandry. Nutrient-rich water from fishponds is used to cultivate probiotics and irrigate crops, transforming the waste from fish farms into fertilizer. Finally, any leftover leaves from crops are used to feed chickens.

Vanilla Ueno Park aims to become a 100% zero-waste, closed-loop farm and actively cooperates with neighboring farms to promote local organic produce in Taoyuan. The park is working to raise awareness about the importance of organic cultivation and recycling for the environment.

荒地變身循環農場 打造零廢棄環境

在桃園大溪中寮島上,滿滿的韭菜田中,有一間香草園不單只把香草種植在溫室裡,更將香草變身為天然的除蟲劑,利用香草散發的味道可以驅趕害蟲的特性,不使用農藥化肥,打造天然有機農園。

為了達到環境的永續發展,香草野園將農業廢棄物再利用,他們打造一套農業、養殖、飼養循環系統,例用養魚的肥水培養益生菌,灌溉於農作物,將養殖魚水的廢棄物變身為肥料,最後也將農作物的剩菜葉拿來餵雞。

香草野園目標成為一個實踐零廢棄的循環農場,也積極與鄰近的農場合作推廣桃園在地有機食材,讓更多民眾重視有機種植與循環共生對環境的重要性。
