By no means am I someone with a "green thumb". I do not and would not have my own garden as doing so holds no interest to me.

That having been said, however, I do find "Living With the Land" to be a very interesting attraction (and an underrated one) in Epcot's "The Land" pavilion.

There's nothing thrilling or exciting about this slow-moving boat ride but what makes it worthwhile is just seeing the innovations in growing all different kinds of plants and vegetables at work. It shows you how food is grown in varying ecosystems such as desert, rain forest, etc. There are many varieties of exotic and well-known plants growing in this environment, some of which are growing in the oddest of ways.....yet still thriving.

An interesting plus to the ride is that much of the vegetables and edible plants you see being grown are also served to guests in WDW restaurants, so it's not all for display purposes.

Fortunately for those who already know and enjoy this attraction, there is almost NEVER any kind of wait for it. You simply walk right up and there's the boat waiting for you and off you go. It's an enjoyable and educational little ride that is well worth checking out.

Not every great attraction has to be a thrilling one. Sometimes it's all about whether it's interesting or not, and "Living With the Land" really is.
