Ningbo to build a tea culture park

According to Ningbo Municipal Afforestation Administration, Ningbo is planning to build a tea culture park on the tea plantation on the Fuquan Mountain in the scenic area of Dongqian Lake.

Ningbo has a long history in tea. In the Tang and Song dynasties, Ningbo was the starting point of the Tea Road on the Sea, where the tea culture was transmitted to eastern Asian countries. However, Ningbo does not have a place to display its tea culture.

According to the plan, the tea culture park of Ningbo shall be a place of interest and a cultural project as well, with such functions as tea production, R&D of tea technology, tea brand promotion and display of tea culture. To be specific, the park of tea culture should be a national-level demonstrative tea plantation, a national-level base of tea breed resource, a production area of the tea branded "Mingzhou Xianming", an important tourist resort in east Zhejiang and a science popularity and education base.

The total investment of the park will be about 100 million yuan. The initial projects for this program will be Ningbo Tea Museum, Exhibition Center of Teas, Ningbo Tea Research Institute, and the packing center of Mingzhou Xianming tea

Tiantong Temple, Ningbo

By James Baquet

    THE morning after my return from Putuoshan Island, my friends and I headed out by private car. We traveled west from Beilun, toward central Ningbo, but then turned south into some of Zhejiang’s wild mountains to find Tiantong Temple, the “Temple of the Heavenly Child.”

    Founded in the year 300, Tiantong is a huge complex, with dozens of ochre-colored plaster and red-painted wood buildings marching up the mountainside. It is also a major destination for pilgrims, especially those from Japan.

    That’s because around 1225, a Japanese monk named Dogen Zenji arrived here, and ended up studying with the great monk Rujing of the Caodong sect of Chan (Zen). Two and a half years later, Dogen returned to Japan and founded the Soto Zen sect (“Soto” is the Japanese pronunciation of “Caodong”), which today claims millions of followers in Japan and throughout the world.

    Aside from the main compound, the temple has two “tayuan,” or “pagoda compounds,” located on another part of the mountainside in lush bamboo forests. One of these evocative cemeteries contains the remains of Rujing himself. We had a hard time finding the compound, and ended up having our driver take us up to it in the car.

    As with all mountain temples, Tiantong Temple is a bit hard to reach. If you’re not fortunate enough to have a friend who hires you a car, try going to Ningbo’s East Bus Station and taking bus 362-3 for Tiantong Temple stop.

Inheriting "Hongbang tailor" culture and spirit

"By taking the course on 'Hongbang tailor' culture, I have got a deep insight into the history of 'Hongbang tailor' dress-making and are greatly encouraged by its spirit. Especially I have come to understand some basic principles such as how to learn, how to live a life and how to do things." said Zheng Fang, a garment major from Zhejiang Textile & Fashion College.

Since the beginning of 2010, the college officially opened the courses on Hongbang tailor culture, lecturing to students the spirit and essence of the culture.

In Zhejiang Textile & Fashion College, the "Hongbang tailor" atmosphere is everywhere. There are Hongbang culture society, Hongbang culture exhibition hall, Hongbang dress shops and Hongbang street. Besides, the underground corridor connecting the teaching area and living area is rearranged as Hongbang culture exhibiting area, so that the students can feel the charm of the  Hongbang culture at ease.       

The Hongbang culture festival, held three times a year, is a good occasion to promote the Hongbang spirit and develop campus culture, through a series of activities such as crafts and skills contest, business plan competition, credit experiencing activity and idea collecting activity.
