Green community dedicated to saving seeds from all over the world
The Pun Pun farm is open for volunteers willing to learn how to grow their own food, for a few weeks to 6 months.
An hour away from the beautiful city of Chiang Mai, exists a small community of around 60 people, dedicated to the conservation of seeds from all around the world.
Back in 2003, the place where we met the members of the community was a gloomy place full of rocks. Sixteen years later, it is unrecognizable. Here stands beautiful trees, houses built out of mud, and a great variety of fruits and vegetables.
The life in the community is quite simple. Everyone has its own responsibilities. Caring for a certain plot of land, sending the seeds or cooking the meals for everybody. They believe that with no rules, people feel responsible for their actions and are driven by their common sense. This way, the community grows healthily with people coming and going with no restraints.
