Depart from your hotel and ride bicycle in 30 minutes, you will come to Tra Que vegetable village - About 150 farmers and 400 owners live here and cultivate about 20 types of vegetables and herbs including mint, lettuce, basil, cilantro, broccoli among others. More than 40 hectares of land and 8 tons of Tra Que vegetables are sold every year. The vegetable growers do not use pesticides or GMOs, instead they rely on a seaweed that is found in the local river that is harvested by boat every morning.
At Tra Que village you will be warmly welcomed by Mr. Minh and his family – a 3 generation with a refreshing 'basil juice, and after your welcome drink you can stroll through the village and meet local people who work in the garden. The local farmers will teach you their cultivation methods, and how to protect developing vegetables from the insects. You will also join the farmers in gardening activities such as raking the ground, sowing, watering greens, transplanting, and tending greens.
After working on the farm you can relax by soaking your feet in a local herbal remedy, as well as Chinese traditional medicine to reduce your aches and pains.
Your next adventure is to prepare lunch with a local family. You will learn how to make 'Tam Huu' spring roll and 'Banh Xeo' pancake, which you will then be able to enjoy along with other local Vietnamese delicacies.
