Down and Dirty at the Permaculture Education Farm
After crossing the border into Cambodia, the team will stop in the capital of Battambang for a night’s rest and introduction to a new country before heading into rural Cambodia! Amidst rice fields and villages, we continue to go further south into 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 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 to this farm that is visited by hundreds of farmers year round.
We’ll be sleeping in hammocks, eating out of palm leaves, and spending evenings by the fire listening to Khmer folktales. We’ll be stripped down to basics, and by doing so, have an opportunity to truly connect with the community!
