Pun Pun is a small organic farm, seed saving center, and sustainable living and learning center. Founded in 2003 by Jon Jandai, it strives to find more ways to live a more self-reliant lifestyle by growing organic food, building natural homes and experimenting with low-tech appropriate technologies. The community seeks to bring back the tradition of seed saving amongst farmers and growers by collecting, propagating and exchanging indigenous and rare varieties. Pun Pun’s four missions are seed saving, natural building, organic gardening and selling seasonal grown products such as Kaffir Lime Shampoo, nut butters and seasonal jams. Pun Pun Organic Restaurants, which are very popular among vegetarians, aim at supporting local organic farmers, farmer networks and propagating biodiversity. Currently, Pun Pun operates two restaurants in Chiang Mai: Pun Pun at Wat Suan Dok on Suthep Road and Pun Pun Market near Airport Plaza on Hang Dong Road. Pun Pun runs courses and workshops in Thai and English at its Mae Taeng Farm, where participants learn about self-reliant living, organic gardening, community living, natural building and natural health throughout the year. Courses being offered include city gardening, land design, introduction to organic gardening, and sustainable water and sanitation.
