Qianxi county in Guizhou province has turned to traditional Chinese medicine to help its people get rid of poverty.
In the past, agricultural products planted in Qianxi's Xinfa village could hardly survive the harsh environment due to stony desertification and soil erosion.
The village has made great efforts in controlling water and soil erosion and building water conservation facilities to improve the fertility of the soil.
