Bali Bamboos for Sustainable Living
If you’re planning to visit Bali, it’s best to experience the half day walking tour at the Green Village. It’s a master-planned area located along Ayung River, a beautiful river valley near the serene landscape of Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. Before the tour starts, you will be given a short brief and complimentary refreshment.
A professional guide will facilitate the tour around the permaculture garden and bamboo forests. The lifestyle you will experience here will surely ignite your curiosity on how the village operates sustainably.
Alfresco Bamboo Warung
Warung is a Balinese term for small cafe. While sitting in this cafe, you will hear the cicadas buzzing. You can accompany yourself with a fresh fruit drink and enjoy the wonderful view around you. Delicious treats are served on banana leaves, making them look more delectable.
The 23-acre tropical land is owned by John Hardy and his wife, Cynthia. The classrooms are made of bamboo, made for pre-K to 11th grade students. Look around, you will find the most impressive structure called Heart of School. Currently, it’s the world’s biggest bamboo structure with 2 swirling vortexes colliding to create a central third double vortex.
Trees and Fruits
Around the area, you will find plenty of trees such as papaya, tapioca, clove, cacao, jackfruit, banana, and many others. Dragonflies are also thriving in the place. But above all, bamboo is the main attraction of the Green School. Bamboo seedlings are spread throughout the village so that more bamboo will be used to build structure.
The Hardy couple aims to build a carbon responsive community to show students how it affects the environment. The main essence of the school is to inspire more people to plant bamboo, and perhaps influence others from across the world to do the same.
By empowering green innovators and global citizens to take full responsibility in promoting world sustainability, the Green School in Bali takes one step at a time to spark that change.
