Gaoyuan Community Development Association
The Gaoyuan Community, located in Longtan, Taoyuan is a typical Hakka
community. Due to poor soil, they used to grow drought tolerant tea as their
main crop. However, in recent years the tea industry gradually lost its
competitiveness. In order to improve the local economy, the Chief of Village
Ms Yu-Chin Huang now promotes the planting of the traditional Hakka crop
mugwort and the development of related products.
