The Dong Kam School Food Garden is a small green initiative to provide a sustainable food source for Dong Kam school students in Kalasin Province. It started as a model project to demonstrate skill building activities for students but became a community bonding experience for the local people as well.

To date, project members, consisting of teachers, students and locals have built many environmentally friendly mini-projects. Locals were trained to build mud houses to reduce costs. A small vegetable garden was also started. Then teachers installed a soil-cement brick making machine and a bio-gas processor to help locals do sustainable work on their own.
