Sustainable living and community tourism in lush Chiang Mai, Thailand

Learn organic gardening, adobe building, Thai cooking and more... or just relax and enjoy!


Earth Home is a refuge for learning about, practicing, and enjoying wholesome and sustainable living. Tucked in a valley among the forested mountains of rural Chiang Mai, Thailand, at the end of a scenic road winding through orchards and verdant rice fields, the air is clean and the water pristine. While here, you can go trekking in the jungle, swimming or fishing in the lake, or picnicking at the waterfall.


Earth Home has its roots in Baan Mae Jo Baan Din, an adobe cottage and organic garden homestay founded by Thongbai Leknamnarong in 2007. Thongbai is a native of Baan Mae Jo, an ardent believer in and proponent of organic, sustainable living, and a gently fierce defender of her region’s traditional culture. Earth Home aims to promote these things, while also providing work and educational opportunities to the residents of Baan Mae Jo.

Staying Here

There are several accommodation options in Baan Mae Jo. At Earth Home you can stay in private adobe cottages or a larger adobe guest house with six separate rooms. Included are three tasty meals each day with organic veggies fresh from the garden, drinking water, tea, coffee, and snacks. Also included is the option of participation in any workshops or other activities with available spots.
