Former farmers plant flowers in Chinese park

Former subsistence farmers plant flowers in a park built over their farmland in front of a new exhibition centre in southwestern China.

The local government is razing villages and farmland on the outskirts of the city to make way for urban development.

These women each earn around 1,000 yuan per month landscaping the city, an improvement over subsistence farming.
