Getting our Hands into Permaculture – Battambang
We go from one extreme to another! After the urban jungle of Bangkok, we’ll head straight into the Cambodian countryside. Amidst rice fields and villages, we will travel to the province of Battambang. We’ll head over to the Teuk Poh Permaculture Education Farm to join Cambodia’s “permaculture action” team – a group of amazing and dedicated activists promoting sustainable farming practices in marginalized communities around the country.
Our team has previously built fences, dug ponds, created gardens, and planted veggies, fruits, and trees. The aim of the project is not only to introduce us to the amazing world of permaculture, but also to get our hands dirty making improvements on the farm and in areas around the commune.
We’ll be sleeping in hammocks and on mats, eating organic, and spending evenings by the fire listening to Khmer folktales. We’ll be stripped down to basics, and by doing so, we’ll have an opportunity to truly connect with the community and our new found friends!
