Planting a Hope PDF Print E-mail


Taiwan is developing one of the top plant shelters in the world.

Toward the end of 2009, Taiwan hosted the third Directors’ Meeting of South East Asian Botanic Gardens, with attendees from 14 countries taking part in activities that included a visit to the Dr. Cecilia Koo Botanic Conservation Center (KBCC) in the southernmost county of Pingtung. The visitors were impressed by the center’s scale and some of the world’s finest plant collections. Named after the mother of center sponsor Koo Cheng-yun, chairman of Taiwan Cement Corp., the KBCC has eight greenhouses occupying some 12,500 square meters spread across five acres of the Koo family’s farm in Pingtung’s Gaoshu Township. As of mid-November 2009, the total collection amounted to 11,858 plant species and varieties, and is expected to expand to 30,000 within two decades to become one of the top plant shelters in the world.
