Farmers: Kris, Naome, Elina & Luca
Like all of our featured farmers, Kris and his family share an appreciation for things that grow. Their resort and school of cultural arts and hospitality, Khmer Hands, was created to bring hope to disadvantaged and at-risk Khmer people by providing education and growing opportunities to secure safe and rewarding employment.
The grounds of Khmer Hands in Kep, Cambodia, are lush and well-manicured, with mango, guava and papaya trees hung with orchids, lemongrass, and even a small coffee tin herb garden. They hope to one day expand their garden to provide their students with hands on training and their restaurant with fresh produce.
It was an absolute pleasure to spend a week in this peaceful oasis. We wish Kris and Naome every success as they work to make the world a better place.
