China farming Living Lab


 A cultural immersion program in a Chinese Farming Community.

This new study abroad program will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in rural chinese civilization. This center cultivates leaders with tools to face the new era of ecological civilization.  It is an experience that will truly give you insight into the meaning of the ancient teachings and philosophy of rural China. 



The study abroad program is located at the Phoenix Hills Commune an hour outside of Beijing, China. This program will be lead by Professor Li Yan, the Director of the Phoenix Academy of Farming and Schooling, whose mission is to cultivate professionals committed to the Chinese Rural Civilization Construction Program. Together, we will design a curriculum for groups to experience that delves into a range of topics from Agronomy to Agritechnology to Agricultural Etiquette to Zenic Agriculture to Chinese Ancient Civilization. The program will include staying at the center, working on the biodynamic agricultural farm, studies of permaculture design and integration of teaching, learning, practicing and collaborating with the local community.

ERI's goal is to build a stronger tie with China and support Chinese organizations whose objectives are to cultivate new young leaders in sustainability. We believe this program is a model for international visitors to learn more about the new "six arts" that embody the teachings of Taoism and its harmony with sustainable living. This international exchange will bring us closer to understanding our roles as global citizens and how we can help support the rejuvenation of Chinese rural civilization.
