PHUKET: The founders of the Phuket Farmers Club have announced the opening of a new organic farm in Pa Klok, and are inviting local residents to join in the club's first 'Workshop', to take place from 10am on Saturday, April 23.
A spokesman for the club says that the founders hope to fill the needs of outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy gardening, eating, and being close to nature.
"We are dedicated to offering you a blend of fruits and veggies grown organically as well as other homemade products at an attractive price. We select the finest products available, so you can be sure they are grown in the most natural ways.
"We also organize workshops regularly on Saturday mornings for people who wish to learn how to grow in the most sustainable ways and prepare homemade products," he says.
The Phuket Farmers Club center is located on Soi Nanua, less than 3km east of the Heroines Monument. Residents are free to visit it by appointment, or for any of the Saturday morning workshops.
At this Saturday's workshop, the focus will be on compost and why it is so important to organic farming. Participants will also be able to taste some homemade products and to learn more about the farm's goals.
