A Lovely Day Was Had

Posted on August 11, 2015 by Shannon Dowling

Last week a lovely day was spent with our farmer friends in Bali.
 
We visited the resting fields, then went to Dek’s house and the rice toss.  Next a brief stop was made to meet the young owls and talk with their trainer.
  
These cute owls were discovered in the roofs of the village government buildings, and are now being trained to catch mice in the rice fields (soo cute!/aww) - they’re definitely going to have fun hunting for their supper!
 
Finally we went back to the house to load up our truck with the 100 bags of Uma Wali organic heirloom rice to bring into town.
  
In the coming season, the whole valley is joining our grassroots renewal of the Subak - the centuries old balinese organic farming technique that strives for harmony in community and nature.
