THE NEED FOR MORE WATER

The year 2021.


January


A new 6,300-liter water tank was added to the property to help supply the 5.5-acre paddy field and the woodlot area in the back with more water.


In order to assist the locals in providing their plants with the correct nourishment using organic resources, we shared a formula for organic fertiliser with them. This organic fertiliser would improve sustainability by lowering expenses, utilising what farmers already have on hand, and costing them nothing.


A subterranean water bank was also put in. In order to keep the earth moist and hydrated, this subsurface water bank would store rain, allowing our plants to get more water during the warmest time of the year.


ORGANIC FERTILIZER


The organic fertilizer recipe includes:


1 part cow/buffalo dung

4 part hay


How to make organic fertiliser:


Combine these two components. Give them enough water each day and let them ferment for ten days. After ten days, we flip the mixture upside down and let them ferment for an additional ten days while daily watering them. Then let them to ferment once more. The entire procedure takes two months before the fertiliser is ready for use.


All-natural organic fertiliser that is free, costing nothing to fertilise the land.


Here are some images and videos we took during this month of the land, the pond and the water tanks:

February


In an effort to see if sweet corn would thrive in Thailand's particular climate, we experimented by planting a small quantity of the crop close to the rice paddies.


In nearly every cuisine and throughout the majority of the world, corn and rice are regarded as staple foods. 51% of the calories consumed worldwide are made up of corn, rice, and wheat.


The main crop and the staple meal that makes up the majority of the diet in Asia is rice. Rice harvesting is regarded as an extremely time-consuming procedure that is sensitive to weather variability. Rice can be harvested more successfully in some regions of Asia than others.




Due to the fact that they won't have to rely solely on one crop for their income, Thai farmers can benefit from growing corn. In many countries, corn is a key element in cooking and is one of the most important exports in the world. Not only is corn used for sweeteners, bread or cornmeal but corn syrup is often used as a substitute for sugar in the food industry. Biofuel can also be produced from corn.


March


During this time, we also placed an order for a different variety of jasmine rice seeds, which will be available for usage in May of the same year. The rice paddy fields will be 15% black sticky rice, 15% white sticky rice and 70% jasmine rice.


For the time being, this is the last update we will give on our efforts to the giving-back project. Keep an eye on our social media platforms for any upcoming developments.
