This description of Supa Yaimuang's work was prepared when Supa Yaimuang was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
Supa Yaimuang is creating a movement of city farming in Thailand to improve access to nutrition for urban residents, while addressing a variety of social and economic problems through community collaborations. Supa’s city farming model is improving the lives of diverse clusters of society, including the urban poor, hospital patients, schoolchildren, and the elderly. Through a systematic approach that links rural knowledge and farmers to urban areas, she has been able to turn city farming into a phenomenon that is spreading to other Thai cities and the region.
