Trophy for the "Carlo Scarpa International Horticultural Award

For many years, the "Carlo Scarpa International Horticultural Award" has been enjoying a high status in the industry, equivalent to the Nobel Prize in the international horticultural sector. This is the first time for China to win this prestigious international horticulture award. The Dazhangshan Ecological Tea Garden integrates the historical tea culture, combines the modern healthy agro-ecological standard, and perfectly illustrates the humanistic concept of "unity of man and nature", and is therefore highly esteemed by the Benetton Foundation. This honor belongs to the hard-working tea farmers of Wuyuan, and it is also a new milestone of China's horticultural level, and it is also a valuable record for China's agriculture and forestry cause to make remarkable achievements.
