Community Gardens Initiative

Encouraging self sufficiency in villages by growing and harvesting their own vegetables and fruit

Community Gardens Initiative

With COVID-19 the supply for food will continue to be an issue for some considerable time on Koh Samui.  Local families already have small gardens, growing a variety of vegetables and some also have egg-laying chickens. As a longer-term solution Sisters on Samui are looking to help with the establishment of more community gardens.  Families can become more self-sufficient by growing and harvesting their own fresh vegetables and fruit.   

Getting Started

Our first project in Chaweng was started by the village residents with a few small garden beds of vegetables planted and harvested during the COVID lockdown. Sisters on Samui provided additional financial contributions which helped to prepare more land for planting and the purchase of building materials and soil for the gardens. The residents of the village provided all of the hands-on labour, sourced recycled materials to prevent erosion and they will continue to maintain the garden.
