Maejo University Agricultural Fair

Chiang Mai has a large variety of Universities and Maejo is the big agricultural one on the outskirts of the city. They participate in the Flower festival and I went to their own fair recently.

What I liked about the place more than anything is the organic, non-GMO stance they take, they are fighting the good fight against Monsanto!

The grounds are huge and I didn’t see all that was on show. Apart from some tool manufacturers and the many local craft stalls.

 

There was demonstrations and competitions

Orchids are quite a big deal here.

Real life silk worms, and spinning of the yarn.

 

I never knew the life cycle of a Banana before.

Plants, fruit trees, vegetables for sale.

A couple of show pieces.

They’ve got a whole division for Vegetable I.T.

I think the selfie phenomenon has spurned a whole host of things to take your picture with.
