Canadian YouTuber Wes Davies grew up on a farm where he learned about organic agriculture at a tender age.
Since arriving in Taiwan, he has settled in Kaohsiung and produced in-depth videos on sustainable agriculture, generating in-depth discussions on the subject.
Completing his videos with an English introduction, Davies incorporated features into his video that is comparable to the filming methods of professional documentaries, allowing Taiwan’s agricultural advances to be portrayed on a global scale.
His videos have since garnered praise from social media users who lauded him for his attention to detail in producing them.
In this episode of “New Immigrants in Taiwan, we asked Wes Davies’ to analyze the reasons how Taiwan has become an eco-friendly farming nation in Asia, and learn about the sustainable development of Taiwan’s agriculture and fisheries from the land and sea.
Wes Davies visited the kitchen of Heh Sheng Primary School in Pingtung County, where local organic ingredients are used for school lunches.
The ingredients all come from local farms, and all ingredients are subject to strict inspection and traceability in accordance with the government’s new policy on placing three agricultural product labels and a QR code on products to provide traceability for their sources.
In addition, a dietitian is responsible for planning the dishes so that students can enjoy healthy and delicious lunches.
Wes Davies traveled to Gongliao District in New Taipei City, to see the eco-friendly and sustainable farming in the terraced fields.
The terraced fields are cultivated without fertilizers and pesticides, and only small machines are used to cultivate the rice. This not only contributes to producing top organic rice but also protects the aquatic life in the rice fields.
Davies believes that this is one of the best examples of ecological protection and eco-friendly farming.
Then, there is the marine ecology of Taiwan.
In the early days, water pollution in the fishing ports of northern Taiwan was serious, but now, with the government’s additional monitoring system, the problem of seawater pollution has been reduced.
With the cooperation of the government and fishermen, a harvestable period and a no-fishing period will be implemented so that marine life can continue to reproduce without the problem of disappearance or extinction.
Wes Davies believes that Taiwan’s policy of sustainable agricultural and fishery development is the reason why Taiwan has become a pioneering agricultural country in Asia.
