The YWCA Bangkok-Pattaya Center set up another city school with its own mushroom farm to bolster nutrition among the student body.
Chairwoman Praichit Jetapai led members to bring the mushroom farm to Pattaya School No. 5 April 1.
She said the farm offers not only vegetables to use in school meals, but generates revenue for the school, which can sell produce not used.
The farm also is an academic workshop for students, who can learn about basic agriculture.
More than 30 schools in Pattaya and the surrounding areas have mushroom farms and the YWCA wishes to create a cooperative mushroom farm in the future for all networking schools to work together.
