Prior to July 4th access to the park has been restricted due a Royal presence in the adjoining Irrigation Department property.
On 4th July Dave & Ricky spent some hours weeding around trees planted in honour of Aung San Suu Ky’s birthday last year.
I am pleased to report that despite the loss of some trees due to police activity many are growing well. In particular 5 Yang Daeng trees which we coaxed through the dry season are looking healthy.
On 7th July , Thursday, from 8:00 am all are invited to do some further planting and tree care.
On 11th July , Monday at 4:00 pm and inspection and planning session will take place at the park in preparation for
On 24th July , Sunday a Public Display and Consultation
These activities are being conducted together with members of the First Church of ChiangMai and the Community Church of ChiangMai which are both situated not far from the park and Gum Hak Doi Suthep.
If you can come please let us know by email or call to Ricky at 0849859668.
Also the Buddhist Holiday Kao Pansa ( do I have that correct ?) falls around 15th July. The communities at Sarapee & Pa Sao, along the Chiang Mai – lamphun railway line will be planting indigenous trees at their respective railway stations. For more details please contact the village head.
