Description of Our Community: The factory of Mister Olive is located on a hill with dry weather and plenty of sunshine. The olive trees are planted on nearby steep slopes, whose drainage system is very appropriate for native Formosan olive growing. Yu Zong Xi, known as Mister Olive, established a olive production and marketing team with the great help of the local government and Farmer’s Association. Trying to develop more olive-related products, Mr. Yu converted his team into a innovative bio-tech industry and built a brand of local produces.
Project Description: Olives, the emerald fruit, are very common in our daily life. We eat preserved olives, we put sliced olives in spaghetti, and we spray olive oil on lettuce and tomatoes to make a delicious salad. But we have the slightest idea where the olives are grown, how they are processed, and by whom they are planted. In this project, we will visit an olive factory in Baoshan, Hsinchu County, to investigate this mysterious emerald fruit.
