看見桃園 引領「埤塘學」邁向國際



十二月二日 踏入蘆竹 感受桃園城鄉魅力

中原大學連續舉辦的國際USR體驗營,繼109年來已邁入第四年。透過USR計畫陳其澎教授,以走讀地景協助在台國際學生,深入感知 #桃園風土與 #埤塘學,至今促進祕魯、挪威、肯亞、香港、印尼、越南、韓國、日本、馬來西亞、德國、法國、菲律賓、聖克里斯多福及尼維斯等十多國學生,重新認識桃園這塊土地,今年更納入了密涅瓦大學的學生一同參與。儘管寒流來襲,仍阻擋不了學生們想參與的熱忱。隨著小巴出發,我們踏入了蘆竹 —— 一個充滿人文與歷史的鄉鎮。學生們跟隨老師的脚步,沿著鄉間水圳來到埤塘2-2-1與2-2-4,一同了解桃園的珍貴寶藏—埤塘與水圳。營隊課程中,其澎老師在地圖上指認每口埤塘的故事,學生在走過的土地留下屬於自己的記憶,包含滿埤候鳥的視野、稻穗的觸感、土地的氣味、喜鵲的歡鳴、地方食材的美味等,密涅瓦的同學們透過觀察也提出了護坡材質的討論,對於氣候變遷調節微氣候的大功臣埤塘,不用水泥而改用 #生態工法的壘石疊砌,也引起學生們極大的興趣。

樸門永續設計學會理事長林雅容,讓學生在 #吉田農園裡,從香蕉圈與田埂植被的種植中了解植物的特性與互補關係。香蕉圈使用自然工法分解有機物,同時為環境附近的植物們提供養分,達成自然界的互利互惠。學生們也在挖土堆、取香蕉幼苗、種植幼苗們的一系列過程中體認 #永續環境的價值與身體力行。營隊的尾聲學生們迎著夕陽來了張合照,期待之後與各位的緣分再續。

December 2nd Step Into Luzhu, Feel The Charm of Taoyuan City and Rural

The International USR Experience Camp continuously held by Chung Yuan Christian University CYCU has entered year 4 after 2020. Through the USR program, Professor Chen Chie-Peng has helped international students in Taiwan gain a deep knowledge of Taoyuan local conditions and Pondology through a landscape study tour. So far, it has helped students from more than 10 countries including Peru, Norway, Kenya, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Germany, France, Philippines, St. Kitts, and Nevis to re-understand Taoyuan this land. This year students from Minerva University also participated. Even though the cold wave is coming, it cannot stop the students’ passion to participate. As the bus set off, we entered Luzhu – a town full of humanity and history. The students followed the Professor‘s footsteps along the rural canals to ponds 2-2-1 and 2-2-4 and learned about the precious treasures of Taoyuan Ponds and Canals. During the study tour, the Professor pointed out the story of each pond on the map. Students leave their memories on their every footstep on the land they walk through, including the sight of migratory birds, the touch of paddles, the smell of the land, the singing of magpies, the deliciousness of local ingredients, etc. Minerva students also raised the issue of slope protection materials through observation. Students are also very interested that the Pond, which plays a major role in regulating the microclimate due to climate change, uses ecological construction methods instead of cement.

The chairman of the Taiwan Permaculture Institute asked students to learn about the characteristics and complementary relationships of plants from planting banana circles and field ridge vegetation in a Jitian farm garden. Banana circles use natural engineering methods to separate organic matter while providing nutrients to plants in the nearby environment, achieving ultimate mutual benefit. Students also realized the value of a sustainable environment and practiced it during a series of processes including digging soils, collecting banana seedlings, and planting seedlings. At the end of the camp, the students took a group photo under the sunset and looked forward to continuing with you all in the future.
