Written by Fu Jingyi Liang Yongqi

In Changsha Chating Town in March, the spring breeze stirred up waves of golden rape flowers. In a chic and exquisite rural courtyard, Tan Gejiao, the manager of the "post-90s" courtyard, accompanied the tourists with a table of refreshments and chatted with everyone about the local cultural customs.

Although the courtyard is small, it is surrounded by large trees in front of the house, overlooking a sea of flowers, and the surrounding small vegetable garden is full of flowers and leafy greens. In the house, wooden screens, wooden cabinets, and wooden tables show the original rural elements everywhere.

"This yard is built to allow visitors to enjoy a relaxed lifestyle." From online self-media to offline village management, Tan Gejiao cleans up small yards according to her own interests, repairs fences, plants flowers and plants, and does live broadcasts, transforming idle old houses into poetic spaces for eating, tea, and lodging.

Tan Gejiao is known as "Tea Pavilion Li Ziqi", for her, this is not only in response to the call of her hometown to develop the "courtyard economy", but also allows "fans" to experience the place to yearn for life, but also carries her poetic life and achieves a "triple win".

In Chating Town, from independent exploration at the village level to integrated resource innovation, in the past two years, a "courtyard economy" adapted to local conditions and diverse forms has been developed, activating the rural "micro-economy" with a wide range of business forms.

Today, more than 70 "colorful courtyard-private dishes" diners are in the door, the courtyard has been planted and built into a green ecological vegetable garden, honey, fruit and vegetable crisps and other characteristic agricultural products are sold hotly, Qingshe Mountain Residence, Xiangyun No. <> and other homestays are in short supply, and a group of people who have returned to their hometowns have started businesses and jobs in the yard.

Tan Du, a cadre of the "post-90s" village in Tan Jiayuan Village, Chating Town, said that the construction of beautiful villages has completed the improvement of village appearance and village appearance, and beautiful courtyards have been built in front of and behind everyone's doors, and the village has made a "courtyard economy" in total, and a total of 15 beautiful courtyards in the town have been included in the village collective economy.

As early as a few years ago, many places in Hunan explored the rural "courtyard economy" to revitalize idle resources in front of and behind the house, explore new directions for villagers to increase income, and promote the construction of Hemei countryside. Through hands-on practice with relatively low risk, villagers may be able to use their skills or acquire new ideas.

In Xiangjiadi Village, Xinhuang Dong Autonomous County, Hunan Province, 1100 meters above sea level, every household basically has one or two acres of yellow essence land behind the front house. With the help and training of experts such as Huang Luqi, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, wild yellow essence transplanted from the mountains has become the courtyard and "money scene" of the villagers.

"Don't underestimate this slap on a large piece of land, the economic benefits are very good." Yao Benhan, a villager in Xiangjiadi Village, said that although the garden is small, it has many functions, not only can grow some fruits and vegetables for daily consumption, but also collect the wild yellow essence everywhere in the village and plant it intensively, and the annual income is also tens of thousands of yuan.

In the countryside, farm yards are assuming a variety of functions. Some open farmhouses, run homestays, and pick gardens, and some open small supermarkets, repair shops, and family workshops, and these family management forms that integrate various production methods such as breeding and handicrafts play a colorful role.

At present, many areas in Hunan Province have launched local courtyard economic construction plans as an important starting point for rural revitalization. For example, Changde City will focus on six aspects, such as characteristic planting, aquaculture, small family workshops, and family service points, and determine the courtyard economic development project in combination with the actual situation of the family, so that the small courtyard can connect the big market.

Colorful courtyards are activating the "pool of spring water" of China's rural revitalization, and there are many vivid examples of courtyards "square inches" transformed into "prosperity gardens" to increase income. Document No. 2023 of the Central Committee in <> proposed that farmers with conditions in poverty alleviation areas will be encouraged to develop a courtyard economy. (End)
