  • Description


    My name is Uma, few years ego I returned to my native place after a long journey where I learn different skills.
    During this journey I worked in a vegetarian restaurant in the center of Bangkok as a cooker, and a teacher of Thai food.
    I also spend a lot of time to learn about meditation, and been to different temple to learn and experiment. Is wath is guide me today step after step in my life.

    Now I am back to my roots, with many memories of my childhood, when my father and mother take care my seven sisters and brothers with this little piece of land, working hard with buffalo to open the soil, my mother even give birth in the rice field, wath an adventure, I am so grateful for them.
    So in they memories I d like to take care this land and be the guardian of the place, the seeds keeper.
    My vision is to practice a natural agriculture.
    In this way, I grow a lot of trees with the intention to creat a forest garden, to fertilizer the land, to reduce the heat, and so more.
    Under i grow some vegetables around the house and, I d like to grow more to be self-sufficiency as possible.
    During April to November is the time of THE RICE, my main food, main job.
    First we take care the fields, then we trow the seeds, we take them out, we grow them again, we control the water, we pray for rain, we select the most beautiful ear for the next season, we harvest, we go to the mild, and then we can eat, give share. Seeds of sweat.
    Its a very traditional path, most of it is made by hand.
    its the time of connexion with neighbor, with clay, with sun, with rain, with ancestor, with green.
