A Feast for the Eyes: Visit the 2018 Spring Festival at Mei-Feng Farm
The Spring Festival is an annual celebration organized by the NTU Highland Experimental Farm. This year, the festival is held at Mei-Feng Farm from March 16 to April 1. The festival showcases various flowers and provides guided tours introducing visitors to these colorful flowers.
Featuring “Mei Feng Fun Travel,” this year’s festival offers a variety of activities during 8:30–15:00 every day. For the 2018 Spring Festival, we have planned areas devoted to specific flowers and plants. For example, visitors will have the opportunity to admire the beauty of Taiwan pleiones, ornamental cabbage, and anemone chinensis in the Temperate Flower Area, Organic Agriculture Area, and Sanyaso Area (“sanyaso” refers to wild plants growing in fields and mountains). One of the highlights this year are the guided tours offered every 10–20 min except lunchtime every day during the period in the Temperate Flower Area and Field Treasure Hunt Area.
Moreover, the festival presents two special activities this year. One of them is the Forest Conservation Activity on March 19–20, where each participant gets two seedlings for free before the seedlings run out. The other is the Air Purification Activity on March 26–27, which gives out a potted air-purifying plant to every visitor wearing a top or jacket with animal image(s) before the offer runs out.
During this period, visitors may take the Nantou Bus’s “Puli Station-Songgang” route or “Taichung Station – Puli Station – Cingjing Farm” route to the farm. More information about bus routes and schedules can be found at http://www.ntbus.com.tw/cjfm.html.
Mei-Feng Farm is located at an elevation of 2,100 m about 14.5 k into Provincial Highway 14A. Visitors planning to drive to Mei-Feng Farm may want to reserve parking space in advance; otherwise, they will have to to park their cars around 17.5k into Provincial Highway 14A and take a shuttle bus (NT$ 40 roundtrip) to the farm instead.
