Ms. Truong Thi Huong’s family in Da H’oai district, Lam Dong province was one of the first households present in Tu Rang village right from the first days of the new residential area being established in 2012. Join the Planting Cooperative mushroom, but when the cooperative model was no longer maintained for many different reasons, her family persisted in the profession. Investing mainly in two types (abalone mushrooms and cat mushrooms), each year 4 batches of main mushrooms and batches of pillow mushrooms, each batch has about 10,000 bags of mushrooms, stable income helps the family gradually stabilize their life. Ms. Huong shared: It’s cold here, but when making mushrooms according to the technical process, most types of mushrooms grow and develop quite well.

Settling in a new residential area in early 2013, currently, Ms. Tran Thi Truc Phuong’s family has built a spacious wooden house and has stable production on 1,000 m2 of garden land growing all kinds of vegetables, tubers, and fruits. cold. With only about 1 acre of strawberries, her family has a steady income with an average price of 70,000 VND/kg.

During the peak of autumn, you won’t be able to sell them all fresh, you won’t be afraid of spoilage or being left alone. I use it to make wine and jam, send it to shops and hotels in Mang Den to sell to tourists, and that’s okay…

As part of the planning project for cold-country vegetables and flowers and crops associated with eco-tourism in Kon Plong district, up to now, 37 households have been accepted into the new residential area of ​​Tu Rang village.

Growing vegetables and fruits in cold climates in the new Tu Rang residential area

Up to now, most people in the new residential area have built houses and cleared and prepared land for production. However, because the water supply system has not been installed, many households still cannot focus on growing crops. In the case of Ms. Tran Thi Soi from An Phu, Sa Dec, An Giang, she came to settle in Tu Rang village, but because there was no production country, she temporarily worked as a contract laborer at Mang Den Youth Cold Country Vegetable and Flower Cooperative. Based on focused construction, by the end of January 2015, the new water supply system was completely invested. “If there is water, I will go back to gardening in the new residential area. The wish of everyone here is to create a rich flower and vegetable area like in Da Lat and Sa Dec…” – Ms. Soi believes.

Fundamentally and long-term, ensuring new electricity and water supply helps settled households truly stabilize and develop production. Therefore, with a complete investment in the water supply system for daily life and production, the new residential area of ​​Tu Rang village will certainly create new developments in 2015, contributing to promoting the cold-country flower and vegetable project. Mang Den develops according to requirements and set goals./.
