Looking into the Dragon's Eye (Part 2 of 2)
This article is part of our theme-based journazine titled "The Sauce". The inaugural issue focuses on Soil, as we believe that soil is the foundation of all things to come. Print and digital copies of the full issue are available here. Check it out for more stories from the community and how Foodscape Collective's projects have come about.
It was only slightly past 6 in the evening as our bus pulled up next to a shelter by the side of the road. I can sense the daylight fading very quickly and the cool of the night taking over. A few of us from Foodscape Collective had arrived at Doi Pui village, in Chai Prakarn district, a 2.5 hours drive from Chiang Mai city. Shortly, Vivian’s uncle – a very jovial character – bumbled by in his pick-up to fetch us to the neighbourhood. Along the way, just before we reached Garden of L.E.A.H., Vivian pointed out to us the longan orchard that we have been hearing and talking about. I registered its general orientation and that it sat just a mere ten minutes walk away from the mudhouse where we will come to spend most of our time, but I could barely see a thing then. Following dinner that night, with Vivian leading the way, we found ourselves navigating with our headlamps as we made our way to our tents in the longan orchard where we would spend the night.
