Lek & Greg Vegan Camp
Lek & Greg started the vegan camp (vegan retreat, vegan farm stay, vegan home stay, vegan restaurant, vegan garden) project early 2017 in Li (Lee) Lamphun, Thailand. Li also known as Lee is located 130 km south from Chiang Mai. You can reach Li by car, by bus, or by one of the many blue and white taxi services. The cheapest and maybe easiet way is to take the bus, which takes 3 hours from Chiang Mai to Li. Currently (2017-02-14) the cost ist 70 baht per person and 100 baht for your bicycle (road bike).
We are growing durian, tomatoes, bamboo, bananas (cavendish, apple banana, and some other varieties), leafy greens, lemon grass, cassava, green pepper, peanuts, galangal root, guava, chillies, aloe vera, longan, passion fruit, avoacado, mangoes, squash (pumpkin), cucumbers, Thai cale, dragon fruit, climbing wattle (cha-om), date palms, papaya, jackfruit, ginger, pineapple, sweet potato, Thai herbs, and many other cool plants. We are also trying to sprout washing nuts and flax seeds.
Li is away from the tourist area and very crowded and noisy tourist city. We provide shelter and comfortable stay for anyone who would like to experience veganism and many of the other things you can experience here in the vegan camp. This is a family friendly concept for people who want to get healthy and enjoy life. We try to practice a slow life, but are currently busy with all the new stuff here.
We are inspired by places like the Pranya Project and The Mindful Farm. Thank you! You are welcome to volunteer here at the vegan farm. Contact os to apply for volunteering - we ask for 250 baht per day for accomodation, food, and development of the vegan farm stay.
Everyone is welcome, but please contact us before you arrive, so we make sure we are here to great you when you arrive. ;-)
We speak English, Thai, Danish, Polish, Laotian, and a bit German (understand slow German quite well).
See you around!
