The roots of rural life - Ledringhem

Ecomuseum "The Roots of Rural Life"

A place of sharing and transmission.

From human-powered tools to the use of animal energy, rediscover how the land was worked before the arrival of modern agricultural machinery. Modern energy has revolutionized our society; from the steam engine to the gasoline engine, without forgetting electricity, enter the universe that "our ancestors" knew.

Each visit has the pure purpose of discovering another era... a leap into the past in order to better understand the present. “THE ROOTS OF RURAL LIFE” aims to highlight the whole culture and heritage of Flanders and rural life.
