About Rak Tamachat Permaculture
- Rak the Story
In the past years, Rak Tamachat has been a conventional farm, focused on growing rice and corn. Though the family has done a great job at achieving fairly high yields, they find that over time a higher and higher percentage of the revenues from the agricultural enterprise goes toward overhead costs, including seeds, fertilizer, herbicides and fossil fuels
The owner really wanted to create a healthy, dynamic environment for his family and to use the project as an education center to help local farmers shift away from the trap of conventional, fossil fuel based agriculture. With inspiration from the Panya Project, and a Permaculture Master Plan designed by Terra Genesis, Rak Tamachat Permaculture Education Center, became a reality.
Rak Tamachat Permaculture Education Center now offers courses throughout the year and supports an Educator training Internship for those people who want to learn how to teach PDC's or other permaculture courses. There is plenty of opportunity for anyone who wants to gain some practical experience in permaculture systems.
