Our rural experience center is a place where children from the city could experience rural life, learn and grow together in nature. As children plant crops in our fields and observe how crops grow, they learn that we reside all in one ecosystem. We provide activities such as gardening, cooking, carpentry, learning about village, traditional games, ecology lessons, taekgyeon (martial arts), seasonal customs, ceramics, and embroidery. We also interact with the village residents through programs such as taekgyeon and dance lessons. We also run an experience village where you can experience a variety of rural life.
