The Sufficiency Economy is a concept developed by His Majesty King Bhumibol for the benefit of his beloved country. It concerns plans and strategies for Thai people to live independently within their means, and to protect and nurture our land and natural resources in a thoughtful, sustainable way which will ensure a prosperous and happy future for Thai culture, Thai People, and Thailand itself.
Located at Tambon Mae Sa and covering an area of 40 acres, the Centre is a rich source of knowledge about the Sufficiency Economy concept and also about local wisdom. It also contains information on how to conserve our resources and environment, and how to use them appropriately in the long term.
The Centre comprises exhibition and demonstration zones, including plots of land demonstrating new farming theories, as well as mixed vegetation plantations aiming to encourage self-reliance, achievement, and a sustainable life in accordance with local traditions and practices.
The centre also exhibits projects from the Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques (popularly known as SUPPORT), with funds provided by Her Majesty Queen Sirikit and private donors.
Exhibits are presented as edutainment displays suitable for all ages to enjoy. The Learning Centre has a progressive air of recreation, and is a place which approaches visitors to learn and apply the Royal model in practice in their own lives.
