Gardens of Eden Kicks Off its Green Planet School-farm Sponsorship

Gardens of Eden’s commitment to Phuket’s green vision is gaining momentum with the installation of an organic garden in the Kindergarten of Municipality of Choeng Thale, which was built by farmers in Bang Tao. Community engagement for developer Amal Development begins with a dual focus on environmental betterment and education.

Created as part of the Green Planet school-farm sponsorship programme by Phuket Hotels Association, the garden was completed on May 20 and to celebrate its handover to the kindergarten students. Yana Chuvalova, director of sales & marketing at Gardens of Eden, and Jayne MacDougall, executive director of Phuket Hotels Association, were on site to mark the occasion.

Also gracing the event was special guest Manoch Panchalard, the chief executive of Choeng Thale Subdistrict Administrative Organization.

School children learning about planting in the gardenLearning begins with hands-on interaction in the gardens and setting an example by tree planting.

“Nature and community are at the heart of everything we do,” says Chuvalova. “It is the concept we are creating for Gardens of Eden, and our philosophy extends to the wider community in Bang Tao through our gardens and educational initiatives to inspire the next generation to build a greener future for Phuket in the long term.”

The garden, which features garden beds, a plant nursery and a worm farm, encourages practical interaction in the students’ daily learning, highlighting the importance of cultivating gardens and the roles they play in promoting a healthy natural ecosystem.

Says MacDougall, “The Green Planet school-farm project is vital in uniting businesses and communities to foster early environmental education for children and to nurture a generation of Earth stewards. It is through hands-on experience that kids learn to grow and nurture plants, while schools benefit from having fresh vegetables in their kitchens. The Phuket Hotels Association is honoured to spearhead this endeavour to enrich our community’s commitment to sustainability.”

“This is an emerging community in action, making a meaningful contribution,” adds Ravi Chandran, corporate affairs advisor at Gardens of Eden and 25-year resident of Phuket. “It is essential to make a positive impact across the island and this is evidenced not only by example on the project but through a ‘greening’ philosophy for the local community.”

Gardens of Eden is a future-generation project in Phuket. Cherishing community and nature above all else, it appeals to an audience that believes in bringing up their families in an ecologically sound environment with well-being at its heart.

Native trees, green space and making a positive social contribution are the new luxury, according to the developer, as they set out a new vision for the destination.
