We at Feun Foo Permaculture Chanthaburi would like to welcome you to explore our ideas and visions!
‘Feun Foo’ (ฟื้นฟู; pronounced fern foo) is Thai and means ‘restore’, ‘rehabilitate‘ or ‘revive’, and that’s how we see ourselves:
We cooperate with Nature to create a food jungle – a self-sustaining and natural habitat for human beings. We revive an ancient, long forgotten way of life, so that it may lead us into a better, not only sustainable, but regenerative future.
We provide one of many paths to live a happy and healthy life in harmony with Nature.
Our mission is to become fully autonomous and develop a regenerative way of living. We do that mainly through practicing permaculture, but include elements of rewilding and primitivist philosophy and spirituality.
We believe human beings are an inseparable part of Nature, one species in an enormous interconnected web of living beings that depend on and benefit from each other.
We take care of our landbase and plant all kinds of different fruit and vegetables on one hectare (and a bit) of land. Our focus is on collecting rare banana trees, and so far we’ve collected over 50 different kinds.
We just started a crowdfunding campaign on Patreon!
