Event description

Description

Ever thought we need to make our city a better place? You've found the right people to do just that: planting more trees in Bangkok!

Whether familiar or not with gardening or permaculture, let's learn more about trees, and change our perspective on how we live and can directly have an impact on our living ecosystem, Bangkok!

Let's get out of the box together with an experienced landscape architect and permaculturist who has an unusual life goal: build urban structures with living trees! (check out Goustan's TedX talk for more on that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_GOEIpxn1E )

Now that rain season is over, we'll see how to prepare and nurse trees that you can plant back home, or keep until next year's rain season, when we will plant all these trees together on a structure to make a vertical forest!

Take away:
. meet like hearted people
. learn and practice permaculture principles in an urban setting
. learn and practice tree planting, growing from cuttings
. feel empowered to act
. have fun!

Our tree hunting workshop lasts about 2 hours and comes in 3 parts, please be on time!
. meet and learn ~30 minutes
. hunt for trees ~45 minutes
. prepare trees/cuttings for nursing ~45 minutes


This event is on Ekamai. We'll first meet at Madee (Ekamai Soi 4 - https://www.facebook.com/madeehub ) and then walk to the hunting grounds where artists have prepared amazing murals and keep the building publicly accessible for just one month! It's a single storey vacant building where we can find adventure and... many Banyan trees!

While we provide everything, it's very cool to contribute to our 'treasure' at no extra cost! Please bring:
. 1 empty plastic bottle per tree you'd like to keep (1.5L min, soda bottles are best)
. some old clothes to sacrifice for planting the tree (natural fibers are best)
. drinking water for yourself!

Event fee: 150B (prebooking before the 23rd), 250B at the door, Bangkok Forest group members have an extra 50B discount! ;) Pre-book here (Early Tree) https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hunt-and-plant-banyan-trees-in-ekamai-tickets-39863448648
