AGLC focuses on the practical aspects of training in the area of green solutions and environmental friendly technology. Participants will be engaged with hands-on sessions to better understand the theory and principles of these solutions. Training is applicable to schools, government organizations, NGO, companies and even a small group of like-minded individuals.
We are particularly specialized in the follow areas:

c. DIY environmental friendly products
d. Natural farming (some may call it eco farm or permaculture)
e. Customized Training especially in green solutions and sustainability
In the recent years, AGLC has been devoting more attention to natural farming to improve yield and quality of agricultural produces without resorting to chemical fertilizers and pest control. We have integrated ecological cycle into our farm such as raising ducks in a pond together with fishes for aquaponics; chicken caravan that moves about in the inter-row of fruit trees for them to foliage on the weeds, feeds on pest and at the same time fertilize the soil. Another example is the movable sheep pen that does almost the same as the chicken caravan to control grasses and organically enriching the soil. Save some labour and fuel for cutting grasses!
Why laze around with conventional vacation that you may not be rejuvenated and enriched. Parents spend a lot of hard earn money to bring the family for vacation and relaxation year after year. However, the effect is usually just simply visiting somewhere new but there is very little else achieved. Farmstay, on the hand, is an opportunity to bond, to learn, to contribute, to be with nature and to create great memory together. It is a vacation for all ages.
Participants have plenty of opportunity to feed the animals, watch them swim, feed, play, rest and help to collect eggs. Learn how to make various types of organic fertilizers and enzymes that enhance the growth of plants and vegetables. Be the planter, harvester and feels the joy of working with your hands to grow foods. There are simply many activities to enjoy in the farm and garden. What can be fresher than the fruits, vegetables, and eggs that you have hand pick by yourselves. If you grow up in a city and come as a family or group, collectively you are likely to remember this experience for life.

6. Community Services
Servicing and making a contribution, no matter how small, to improve the life of others who are less fortunate, is a mutually rewarding journey for both the givers and the recipients. Similarly, simple sustainability services such as planting trees, cleaning up the beach, laying public pavement, bring joys to everyone.
AGLC is frequently out in the field especially remote rural communities to build public clinics, improve schools, install solar power, construct micro hydro power stations, teach and build efficient charcoal kilns among other more technical demanding works. The staff of AGLC gains valuable practical experience from these projects in difficult and challenging environment. Besides sharing these experiences in our training courses, we organize working trips to these rural villages in different parts of Thailand and Laos. Please note that these are not sight-seeing excursions although the journey to the destination is usually filled with beautiful scenery and surprises. Interested party should contact us as early as possible as there are much preparation work for any of these volunteer trips. Voluntarily donation and fees will be charged to help with the expenses and some project cost.
