System: last but not least, is just a fancy word that translates to “software“.

The Rak Tamachat Permaculture Design Institute Campus

Visit www.raktamachat.org

The Rak Tamachat Permaculture Design Institute was designed from scratch to be a Permaculture and Natural Building Education Institute.

A Permaculture Master Plan was commissioned to assure that the Permaculture Design Institute Campus would have all of the facilities necessary to provide world-class Permaculture Design educational experiences.

The Permaculture Campus is located in an idyllic rural farming area, three hours from the capital of Thailand, Bangkok.

The location adds to the authenticity of the Permaculture Design Institute in providing not only a showcase for international students but also the local Thai farming community.

Listed as one of the Best Permaculture Design Campuses, Rak boasts over 3,000 SM under roof spread over 75 acres, which allows ample space for all the Permaculture activities a student needs in order to learn Hands-on Permaculture.

From the Communal Sala to the Amazing Permaculture Design Lecture Classroom and Tranquil Bungalows, all aspects of the Permaculture farm have been well designed and constructed out of Natural Materials.

The Permaculture Campus is a showcase for the Natural Building Techniques taught on the Institute’s Natural Building Courses.

The international standards of construction make the Rak Tamachat Permaculture Farm more of a “Perma-resort“, but that is what a great Permaculture Master Planning and fun work can achieve!
