CROPS AND FISHING

The year 2020.


MARCH - GETTING READY


We have a huge variety of 1,000 different plants ready to grow in the nursery. Unfortunately, it was too hot to begin growing our plants in April, as April is always the hottest month in Thailand. Thus, we have to wait for the weather to

cool down a bit.


Here are some photos of this process:







MAY - GETTING OUR HANDS DIRTY


10,000 fish have been released into our 2 fish ponds. These include Tilapia, Freshwater pomfret, Thai carp,

the Climbing Perch, and Red Tilapia. These fish were specifically chosen as they each contribute to a more sustainable ecosystem in our ponds. For example, Tilapia is a sustainable farm-raised fish. Tilapia are herbivorous fish that feed on algae; therefore, there is no need for feeds produced from wild-caught fish. Raising tilapia in some ponds can actually help improve the quality of waters compromised by excessive algae blooms.


We planted jasmine rice and black sticky rice on the rice paddy field, which covered 1.6 acres of the land.


We also planted more trees, including Acacia, Gurjan Tree, Bamboo, and Mahogany, on 0.7 acres in the woodlot area.


Here are some videos/photos of this process:

JUNE


As a result of hydration plus a little help from an excellent rainfall, our trees are getting bigger and healthier.
