an other interesting news from Travelmole ; the Chaophya Hotel Bangkok just started an organic food garden. Quite an interesting initiative in such a busy and polluted city.
The “Park Organic Veggies” was initiated in 2008 on a vacant land, near the hotel’s Golf Driving Range. Here, vegetables are grown organically, without chemical fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides.Hydroponic items are also being grown here with natural rainwater and sunlight.
What is interesting to note is that a nice part of the produce is transferred to the hotel kitchens. Another part is elegantly packaged under the Park Organic Veggies own label.
So if you pass by bangkok on holiday, you know where to shop and dine !
