A formally illegal settlement of urban farmers in Taipei, Taiwan. After a participatory planning action between Casagrande Laboratory, local NGOs, Treasure Hill community and Taipei City Government the area has been restored into a model community of environmentally sustainable urban living in Taiwan.
A "must-see location" by New York Times.
The legitimation and restoration process (2003-2010) of Treasure Hill is now completed. Some of the old community has moved back and some have moved away. Now the next step is to inject new blood into the hill. The organism is ready and willing to live. Missis Chen is still in charge.
