Permaculture Children’s House is an ongoing project started in 2015 framed into a Thai foundation with origins in Chiang Mai and created by Xavier Bruzaud-Grille and Nathalie Wanchan, their daughter Sophia and son Eden, Chiang Mai elder, Mr. Suphakit Wanchan and Roi Et Elder, Mrs. Samlee Prapnhongbua.
The initial project came from the failure of a strategy when trying to implement a change in a hill tribe village. Following this failure we had a ‘think-tank’. After this reflection, we decided to create Permaculture Children’s House initiating an education concept combining Permaculture, Self Directed Studies and Sociocracy…
Permaculture Children’s House is a Thai Foundation and will be an academy and education center where we can blend Permaculture, Self directed studies, Sociocracy, PCH own 7 R principles: Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle and Rot, Arts, Dance, Cooking, Montessori education, Language learning and Zero Waste. We are located on a 10 acre, 4 hectares, 26 rai land, in San Kamphaeng, 20 minutes from Chiang Mai city face to Mae On moutains.

“Local experiment – Global example!”
We think that most of the people are living inside the city or in the suburb of Chiang Mai and an example is needed by setting a Permaculture design that will host one part to our suite of PCH academies. The PCH concept has the potential to be a model or example – possibly a global model – that can be used in other communities and other countries. After establishing a first model, it will be a blue print that can be used everywhere in the world under every latitude.
