Pedal powered corn shelling

Kofi Taha demonstrates a pedal-powered corn sheller at the 2011 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. The Peace Corps, celebrating its 50th anniversary, is featured at the festival this year. The bicycle-powered sheller is an example of appropriate technology--solutions that are relatively simple and economical, but that are also effective and appropriate to the culture and environment from which they emerge.In many countries around the world, Peace Corps volunteers are working with community groups and partner organizations to help identify and implement the most appropriate technologies available.
