INTERNSHIP (education or agriculture) – Foster interactions with local schools

Project: Land Restoration and Permaculture Farm

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.

Education & local schools

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.
