After discussing, the Geopark Management Board and the villagers of Hang Thoang hamlet conducted a field survey to select the place to deploy the project. The selected location is a place surrounded by the Quay Son River, with beautiful scenery, fertile soil, and convenient irrigation with a system of water wheels along the river. In particular, in this hamlet, that a geopark partner, Lan’s homestay (Nung horse homestay) has been running experience tourism associated with indigenous cultures attracting a lot of domestic and international tourists is a favorable condition for the implementation of this project. Besides, the Geopark Management Board will also promote product consumption in the Non nuoc Cao Bang geopark partner network to ensure the market for the products.
For the implementation of the environmentally friendly agriculture associated with tourism development, the Geopark Management Board will continue to work with the People's Committee of Trung Khanh district and relevant agencies to support the training on agricultural techniques for the locals, communication and promotion on social media, product consumption, planning on growing seasonal vegetables, selecting vegetables matching with the soil condition and agricultural seasons and the needs of visitors, contributing to promoting the cuisine of Cao Bang. This is also one of the projects towards the "localization of food production" strategy, contributing to the conservation of indigenous plant and livestock genes, mitigation of carbon footprint and environmental pollution from agricultural activities, and improving the quality of tourism services in general, and food services in particular in the Eastern route of the geopark – “Experience the traditional cultures in a wonderland”.
