Organized for the Yonghe Community College, I joined an outing to this small Atayal community in the mountains of Fuxing Township, Taoyuan County not far from 小烏來. It was fun and informative and I learned quite a bit about the hunting culture of this community. Afterwards, we visited their young organic Taiwan kiwi orchard that has just begun producing and will be ready for market next year.
