Pun Pun Organic Farm
Pun Pun Organic Farm is a seed center and organic farm in Thailand. It collects rare and indigenous seeds from around the world, propagates them at the farm, and distributes them through its network of organic farmers and communities. It is a living seed bank, meaning that it not only collects seeds to keep but also grows and exchanges the seeds continually to propagate the species coming back to use. The farm also packages and distributes organic heirloom seeds to the local area. It is a small seed center and grows what it can while also working with and training farmers and growers to do the same. It also strives to promote the idea of bringing the practice of seed-saving back to the lives of farmers and growers.
A 2016 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported the creation of a new space for the farm’s seed-saving work. As its seed-saving program grows, it has a need for a physical space in which to more conveniently process, store, and teach about seed-saving.
