Former farmers landscape former farmland in China
Former farmers plant trees and sow grass seeds in a park built over farmland in southwestern China's Chengdu city.
The local government is razing villages and farmland on the outskirts of the city to make way for urban development.
These women are from the distant township of Guang'an. They work in brigades and sleep in dormitories. They each earn around 1,000 yuan per month landscaping the city, an improvement over subsistence farming.
