Nestled above the hustle and bustle of the Prakanong area, Grandpa Urban Farm (formerly called Grandpa City Garden) features 100 square metres of productive green space, serving as a great little centre to learn more about (and try your hand at) urban gardening and other eco-friendly practices devised for the home. Developed and maintained by the Media Center for Development Foundation (MCDF), a non-profit environmental organisation, the garden has gained popularity among Bangkok residents, including children, youth and adults of all ages.

Kids will especially enjoy the garden’s hands-on approach. Here, they can prepare sprouts for planting, transplant such sprouts into the soil, grow rice in flooded cement containers, decorate their own vegetable pots, make compost from kitchen scraps and waste, and manually power a simple irrigation system fashioned from a bicycle – all while gaining lessons about basic agriculture, environmental responsibility and natural goodness.

The farm can be accessed via the BTS at Bangchak Station.
