Food Forest

Finally the rainy season has arrived in Thailand and we’re pleased to welcome one of the first volunteer teams from the local church on our community farm to help planting more than 1.000 trees.

Those trees will be planted on the Eden Farm near Doi Saket where we recently opened our first dorm for students.

In the next few years those little seedling will grow and are then part of a “food forest”, so we will become more and more independent, create income, secure our own food, and do our part for the environment.

“The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit”
