1. Description of Our Community
Fenyuan Township is located in the northeast of Changhua County, Taiwan, at the junction of Changhua County, Taichung City, and Nantou County. A garden in Fenyuan originated from the cultivation of poppy tobacco by local residents during the Qing period. The tobacco was called 'Fen' or 'hun' in Taiwanese. At present, the agricultural products of Fenyuan are mainly pineapples, followed by coffee that has been actively revived in recent years.
2. Summary of Our Project
Fenyuan Township Farmers ’Association and Tongan Elementary School have also actively revived Fenyuan coffee in recent years. After few farmers have promoted the farmers’ association, dozens of coffee farms have been developed. In addition, Tongan Elementary School is also actively developing coffee. Teaching and classifying coffee as the school's standard course, I hope that through the efforts of all circles, the successful recultivation of Fenyuan Coffee will become a local feature.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
I think the biggest problem in the group is lack of time. In the school can only use a short lunch break time, and some of the number is often unable to come because many people in this group have other positions are also lunch time meeting. So we use winter vacation more leisure time, and went to the school together to do the site, will be additional at home production. Members of this group are business management department. In the computer program is not often contact, so do not familiar with using it. Thanks teachers carefully taught almost zero from the beginning. If there are small places unknown we will support each other, or Find answers from the web yourself. Every week we will have a meeting for making and discussing website, and draw up a goal, everyone assign different jobs, some teammate may not hand out on time because of the personal reasons, caused our inconvenience, Otherwise we will review our job assign, readjust, and let the finished teammates help those who were unfinished, helping each other, and play our team force.
