Kul Kul Connection is thrilled to announce our next rice cycle course which is scheduled to start by the end of November. Inspired by John Hardy’s TED talk, this course is intended to allow students to not just learn about the rice cycle, but also to live the rice cycle.
This course will provide you a wide-range of experiences and benefits, including:
Receive academic credit
Learn about an organic rice planting method called SRI (System of Rice Intensification)
Experience the rice cycle with a local master
Increase knowledge about land ecology
Enjoy learning in a beautiful location with the KKC squad and some local students.
Get tanned, muddy, and healthy
Cook your own organic food at the end of cycle
Be a leader of future organic farming
The course will entail 9 meetings, lasting about 4 months starting end Nov 2016 to Mar 2017. Each meeting will be around 1.5 hours with a specific agenda. You only need a commitment to be on-time in the morning and our Bio Bus will help us to get to the rice field. The schedules, specific activities, and pictures of our previous rice planting are available below.
