We at Feun Foo Permaculture Krabi would like to welcome you to explore our ideas and visions!
‘Feun Foo’ (ฟื้นฟู) is Thai and means ‘restore’, ‘rehabilitate‘ or ‘revive’, and that’s how we see ourselves:
We restore Nature to original beauty by converting a palm oil plantation into a food jungle. We revive an ancient, long forgotten way of life, so that it may lead us into a better, not only sustainable, but regenerative future.
We provide one of many paths to live a happy and healthy life in harmony with Nature.
Our mission is to become fully autonomous and develop a regenerative way of living. We do that mainly through practicing permaculture, but include elements of rewilding and primitivist philosophy and spirituality.
We believe human beings are an inseparable part of Nature, one species in an enormous interconnected web of living beings that depend on and benefit from each other.
We heal our landbase (which was previously devastated by years of oil palm monoculture) and plant all kinds of different fruit and vegetables on half a hectare of land. Our focus is on collecting rare banana trees, and so far we’ve collected over 50 different kinds.
We offer anyone who is interested the opportunity to stay with us on our farm or to be a volunteer and take permaculture introduction courses that include tropical horticulture, growing organic vegetables and trees, primitive skills, sustainable building methods and many other topics.
