An agro-technician receives an average salary of 4,500 yuan ($642) monthly, while ordinary staff members receive more because their work is heavier — a monthly salary of 6,000 yuan.

"We plant 13 kinds of fruits and vegetables," said Jiang Dewen, who is in charge of the park. We teach residents how to plant vegetables and fruit in the greenhouse, but the most important thing is to give them skills that they can share with others in the future."

More than 334 households in six nearby villages benefit from the project.
