Once again bangkokvanguards are on mission with Khun Preeda and his team to do their part to prepare and recover flood affected communities in Chai Nat. A Substantial part of the donation we have raised during Wipe the Tide will be put to good use and we want to share the achievements with our community who helped to raise the money thus on the weekend of 14/15July we’re heading to Chai Nat to help farmers plant flood resistant plants namely 800 bamboo trees which are cultivated with organic methods. This is part of our micro loan based funding to facilitate the necessary trainings, tools and resources to help farmer grow bamboo in order to secure income during the flood and expand the organic farming network.
This project was acknowledge by her royal highness Maha Chakri Sirinthorn and we want to introduce visitors to Thailand and locals alike to experience the beauty and lifestyles of a less known region of Thailand and work hand in hand with Khun Preeda and the locals for a better future.
The event will be held during two days whereas the first day will mainly include a trip to the northern highlights of Chainat and the neighboring province U-Thai Thani followed by setting up our tents (no resort this time) at the agricultural learning center. There we will send a team to the market to buy food and drinks to get the German style Schwenk BBQ ready and our talented guitar players should get their guitars ready and the singers make sure they got a soul voice like Whitney Houston coz if we camp and schwenk we go all in!
bangkokvanguards are Schwenk ambassadors to Thailand what that is check it out. After having become professional tree and rice planters last time we’re now moving to the next level of becoming expert bamboo planters right after our breakfast on the second day.
We’ll be heading back to Bangkok late afternoon and probably arrive there around 6-7p.m. The expenses that have to be covered by the participants are: van trip from Bangkok to Chai Nat and back (160Baht one way trip) and we have to chip in for food and drinks for the BBQ party. The trip within Chainat, tents, lunch on the first day and breakfast on the second are covered. The maximum number of participants we can take on this great excursion is 40 thus if you’re planning to bring some friends pass them this blog entry and reserve in advance since we go according to the first come first book principle. Looking forward to see an awesome bamboo platoon heading to our friends in Chai Nat.
