Living with the Land

Living with the Land is part of The Land pavilion, and is one of the most educational attractions in any of the Walt Disney World parks. Once aboard one of the boats, you leisurely float through Disney World's cutting edge and experimental agriculture stations, learning abou the work going on in each. In the first greenhouse, you see crops of Southeast Asia; the second demonstrates aquaculture methods (farming seafood, essentially); the third focuses on sustainable farming methods for temperate climates; the fourth actually grows vegetables used in Epcot restaurants; the final greenhouse demonstrates experimental methods such as hydroponics and soilless growing techniques.
