Grow your own food

Terraced paddies like these are found across much of southern China. A vast landscape dominated by rice cultivation. The people that live here, the Miao, have developed a remarkable rice culture, with every inch of fertile land used to cultivate rice. Their wooden houses are built on stilts on the steepest and least productive hillsides. Planting the rice at the right time is critical to the success of the crop. The ideal date isn't easy to predict. Most Miao homes look out over the rice terraces and from early spring a window is left open to let the red-rumped swallows nest on the ceiling of the house. Each year elders note the exact day the swallows return and use the birds' arrival to predict the best time to plant the rice.
