Itinerary

Rice is Life Interactive Program

Living Land Farm

You can buy instant boxed rice either Uncle Ben’s or some other corporate brand, microwave it for two minutes and it’s ready to eat.  But do you know what it takes to cultivate, harvest and prepare rice before it is ready to eat.  It takes a lot more than two minutes in the microwave.  This unique half-day activity invites you on an in depth and hands-on learning experience where you will participate in 14 steps of the rice cycle on the Living Lands community farm.

Rice is the ultimate foundation of everyday life in Asia and yet it is still a mystery for many visitors. On this exceptional tour, you will be a rice farmer for a day.   Learning how to select the seeds, plant, plough with the help of the farms water buffalo and every other step until the last one... eating!  

The Living Lands Farm, a community enterprise just outside of Luang Prabang, which maintains educational programs and professional organic farming right next to village rice paddies. Only small groups are able to join the interactive rice farming experience which actively benefits locals from the community, maintaining their crafts in their traditional form. You will see and learn about bamboo weaving, tool and trap making gardening and even blacksmithing.

Note:
All the family can join in (children over 10 years can join actively) and there are many great photo opportunities, a perfect family experience.
