About 40 people attended the training and most of them are Thai ethnic people.

When finishing the training, the participants went to a hill garden of a member in the community to practice on producing compost and use it to increase the soil fertility for sustainable land use. Farmers also replanted new fruit trees to protect land and improve the livelihood of local people.
