Cu Chi Is Geting a State-of-the-Art Organic Farming Complex

An eye-catching planned project in Cu Chi will introduce a new type of farming to Vietnam.

According to Arch Daily, a Thai architecture company called Integrated Field has designed the Cu Chi Organic Farming Masterplan under a system called closed-cycle organic farming. This will make use of a decommissioned rubber plantation for an "organic food production farm with animal feed, livestock, fruit and vegetation in the closed-cycle operation."

The design website shares that the focus of the project will actually be education, namely through a 50-hectare agro-tourism destination, which will offer visitors farm-to-table dishes and agricultural programs.

Classes on subjects such livestock, food prep, harvesting and organic fertilizer production will be offered as well. Accommodation will also likely be available through a 'farm-stay' concept, creating a unique ecotourism stop. Integrated Field's website, however, offers no details on when we can expect work on this design to begin.
