“so-tsháu” is not “Slacking Off”!
The elders often say: “You can’t have too much of a good thing.”
For over hundreds of years, villages in the mountains of Gongliao District in Taiwan have maintained traditional methods for farming: using manpower and animals instead of machines.
From breeding, transplanting, and weeding to pollinating, harvesting, and fallowing, the farmers go through each process as if it were a ceremony.
Through cultivation they learn the value of patience. Through farming, they learn to live in harmony with nature.
“so-tsháu can’t be done too many times, or else the rice will not grow well.”
Each step of the farming process holds its own wisdom, its own lesson on humility and respect for nature.
