The core vision of Pai Seedlings Foundation is Land Restoration through permaculture and agroforestry. Turning tired rice paddies into a heaven of biodiversity and fertility. We have 5 rai to play and experiment with.
Within this vision lies the mission of producing healthy, nutrient and taste rich food, that nourishes from balanced and living soil while feeding it in a symbiotic manner. The objective is to develop and implement systems that will honour these two missions: 1/ producing enough quality food to sustain the team involved in the project and create abundance to donate to local schools; 2/ recreating soil fertility and biodiversity.
The farm manager will have the responsibility to implement and oversee the maintenance of the whole production, and run operations on a daily basis. He uses his knowledge of local plants and growing periods to plan the production, he is organised with his tools and teammates, he is able with his hands and comfortable with tools, he loves being out in the farm and share his passion and skills.
Creating healthy soil abundant in the nutrients the different plants need takes time, effort and proper analysis to observe and monitor evolution.
Having a map of the soil composition, qualities and lacks in the different areas of the farm is a massive help to inspire the designs and actions around which the fertility restoration will be successful. It will support a proper planning of concrete actions to implement for a durable impact. Detailed analysis requires lab tests to measure the concentration of specific nutrients, organic matter and chemicals: this is why we want to work with Universities, and in return offer a beautiful educational playground for their students to support the establishment of a resilient organic agricultural system
Giving back to the local community that welcomes us in the village of Vieng Nua is important to us, as is the education value of all our undertakings.
It will take passion for our vision, understanding of the local culture and imagination to craft workshops and courses aimed at sparking curiosity and opportunities with local schools.
