Description of Our Community: Chutang Township has a simple folk customs and diverse folk beliefs. It is a rare wonderland in modern society. Located in the center of the Chuoshuixi Plain, with fertile soil, mild climate, moderate rainfall, Chutang Township has excellent argricultral conditions for argricultural producs. It is a typical agricultural township. The population of argricultural is about 85 percent. Because of the far distance from the sea, and close to the river bank of the Zhuoshui River, it is rich in agricultural products, for instance rice, rice noodles, eggs, mushrooms, grapes, burdock tea, peas, pears, etc. Looking back to the past, Chutang people hope to move forward with the goal of "agriculture, tourism and peace" as a joint effort.

Project Description: "Jiulong DaShugong" is located in the riverbed under the "Zhuoshuixi" River. In the early years, most of the local areas were sand land and desert, and no trace of people. Every time when the heavy rain comes, the river suddenly rises, they often flood the coast protection, so they are often submerged and soaked in floods. In order to resist the impact of the "Zhuoshuixi" River, its tree shape evolved into a low squat, the trunk is flat and closes to the ground, and the branches produce many gas roots deep into the soil, allowing the gas roots to become thick trunks, and the crown width extends to the surrounding three. More than a hundred meters, creating a technique landscape of a tree into a forest. In the long-term struggle with the "Zhuoshuixi" River, "Jiulong DaShugong" developed a natural green fortress to protect itself for survival. Under the broad tree umbrella, there is a Three Holy Buddhas for the people to worship and bless the villagers. Today, it has become an important field for human activities and leisure activities in the region. It is hoped that through the research and promotion of our special studies, more people will know about ChuTang, and we are looking forward to deepening the locality for the new generation of ChuTang people and guiding the hopeful direction.
