Strolling Gently in the Fragrant World of Orchids. Roaming Breezily for A Graceful Life of Aesthetics.
As the saying goes, “silent valleys breed the secluded orchids.” The mild elegance of orchids never fails to captivate the aesthetic mind. Taiwan has long enjoyed a reputation of being “the Kingdom of Orchids,” with its breeding and cultivation technologies remaining unparalleled across the world over a prolonged period before its descent from the world championship amid the intense upscaling competition in the recent years.
This workshop sets you on a journey following the trajectory of native Taiwanese orchids, all the way from their serendipitous discovery in their native habitat, through their victorious emergence in international contests, and finally to their enshrinement as a national pride in Taiwanese orchid industry. Let us share with you about the splendid connections between orchids and life, in the hopes of reshaping the role of Taiwanese orchids on the international stage so that Taiwan can burnish its image as the true Formosa.
