What is “AnotherLand”? "AnotherLand" is a reflection of human civilization development; "Anotherland" is the discussion of how to continue the human's civilization. "AnotherLand" is not an ascetic to himself, but trying to study how to make the human's life to be more comfortable. "AnotherLand" is not opposed urbanization, but letting people to have the freedom to choice between cities and Anotherland. "AnotherLand" is not opposed technology, but discussing the merge of nature and technology.

Self-sufficient lab is a project under "AnotherLand" founded by a young couple in a village on Laoshan Mountain in Qingdao, a coastal city in east China's Shandong Province, to study how to supply all basic life necessities themselves and thus lead an independent life.

Can urban citizens actually adapt to such a "raw" living environment?

As it only rained a little this year, they are currently facing the problem of water shortage. Digging a well costs too much and they don't have any plans to do so yet. They fetch water from a stream, but it is far from enough, and is too dirty to drink. They have to use it to irrigate the vegetable field.
