THAILAND - 4 Community Gardens - October 2020
In the past few years, community networks in cities around Thailand have been finding innovative ways to grow vegetables and produce healthy food on leftover bits of land inside the communities and on borrowed land outside. These community gardens may not solve all the problems of hunger and food insecurity, but they have improved nutrition, lowered food expenses and built greater food self-sufficiency for some of the country's most vulnerable citizens. Since the Covid-19 crisis hit, and so many people have lost jobs, lost income opportunities and lost their ability to buy food and feed their families, community gardens have become even more of a lifeline for the poor.  So much so that it’s become a movement now in Thailand’s urban poor communities.   This report takes you on a guided tour through four of these community gardens (in Bangkok, Chum Phae, Surin and Chiang Mai) - each one very different.
