The farming village is a small settlement located in the western Earth Kingdom. It managed to avoid occupation by the Fire Nation during the Hundred Year War.

History

During the War, the village was raided by the Fire Nation. In the process, all the men in the town were captured and Song's leg was burnt.

Prince Zuko and his uncle, Iroh, paid a short visit to this village after Iroh drank tea made from the white jade bush, having mistaken it for the harmless and more palatable white dragon bush. The tea caused a rash that was potentially fatal if no antidote was taken to counteract the effects, so instead of risking the use of other unidentifiable plants that could have similar results, Zuko decided to take Iroh to a nearby hospital, where Song treated Iroh's rash. Afterward, she invited Zuko and Iroh, who were at that time using the aliases Lee and Mushi, to join her and her mother for dinner. Zuko and Iroh left later that evening, secretly taking the family's ostrich horse with them.[1]

Description

The farming village is surrounded by vast crop fields and plains dotted with trees, bushes, and occasional lakes or ponds. Winding dirt roadways, commonly used by caravans and travelers for ease of transportation, snake through the farmland. Many of the pathways culminate at the village center, which is situated by a small body of water divided in two by a covered bridge. It has two support beams and is made entirely from wood, much like the rest of the village. The community's hub is bordered on all sides by low, wooden fencing.

Song's house

The architecture of Song's house accommodated outdoor dining.

The settlement's structures bear numerous stylistic differences to traditional Earth Kingdom architecture. While they do exhibit slanted roofs, overhangs, and temple design touches, they also have black tops, white sidings, and verandas, which give them a distinct flare. Most buildings have a single entrance on all sides and multiple windows on each story, some of which can be closed using wooden boards attached adjacently to the windows. All houses are centered around a wide avenue, and some of them have food supplies or miniature gardens in their yards.[1]
