Over the last two years, a group of farmers in Thanh Dong hamlet (Cam Thanh Commune, Hoi An city, Quang Nam province) have been trained and instructed to become tour guides in their vegetable fields by the Action Center for City Development (ACCD) and Hoi An city’s Economic Department.
Vegetable gardening experience
At present, the organic vegetable fields in Thanh Dong hamlet are not only known as a trade name of safe vegetable but also a destination in Hoi An. The name Thanh Dong begins to appear in the destination list of “Visiting Bay Mau coconut forest” tour by some travel companies. Coming here, tourists can enjoy, exchange and experience gardening as real farmers in vegetable fields, from the preparation of land to seeding and growing sprouts. Ms Katherine Chappel (a tourist from America), who firstly came to Thanh Dong and experienced on the field shared: “It’s very tired but very funny and exciting. This is the first time I can grow vegetable. Your motherland is very beautiful”.
