LIVING WITH THE LAND


Join your WDW skipper aboard an educational and sometimes surprising journey through the narrow canals at 'Living With The Land'. This often-missed attraction which takes an in-detail look at agriculture and its impact on the environment begins with an on-the-move presentation of farming methods and how they've advanced through the ages. Your guide will then take over the commentary as you glide into the experimental growing areas and aquaculture facility. Here you will be taken through the following -

The Aquacell, showcasing crops that swim -- fish and other aquatic life including alligators, catfish, tilapia, sunshine bass and American eel.

The Tropics Greenhouse, growing crops native to Southeast Asia, Africa, Latin America and the southern United States. Rice, sugar cane, peanuts, cacao, bananas and a 59-foot peach palm flourish under a 60-foot dome.

The Temperate Greenhouse, featuring the concepts and technologies of sustainable agriculture, including intercropping, integrated pest management and specialized irrigation systems that reduce waste and increase crop production.

The Production Greenhouse, where tons of tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and other vegetables are grown for use in The Land?s Garden Grill Restaurant and other Epcot restaurants. Land scientists utilize growing systems that are kinder to the environment and improve productivity.

The Creative House, showing imaginative ways to grow crops -- without soil, hanging in the air, even on a space station. USDA scientists currently are working at The Land to develop fruit with a longer shelf life.
