share your blessings
Amma's Garden, is our latest initiative here at Bodhi Glow.
Amma means mother in India and is also the name of our spiritual teacher, Sri Sakthi Amma. So we have named our new vegetable farm in honour of both our teacher, who always encourages people to be of service to the world and Mother Nature, who when in balance provides abundantly for all of her children!
We feel supremely blessed to be living our dream, based in beautiful nature and so desire to share these blessings with those less fortunate.
Therefore, we are cultivating a substantial vegetable farm, created with syntropic practices, so we can provide healthy produce for free to those in need.
Syntropic farming is an exciting advancement in farming, which works in complete harmony with nature. It has no need to deforest areas to grow food, but instead creates food forests in amongst the exisiting nature, with no chemicals. We believe it's the future for farming and are excited to create a showcase piece that will inspire others to take up this practice and allow Mother Earth to regain her balance. We also hope to run workshops here educating people as to how they too can create a syntropic garden or farm themselves and be part of the eco movement towards sustainable farming practices.
We are partnering with groups such as those who help women fleeing domestic violence, the homeless and those facing financial difficulties to make sure our fruit and vegetables reach those who need it most.
The farm shall be run with the help of volunteers and we cannot wait to get started! Initially we will be looking for a handful of volunteers to come and join us for a couple of full days of planting the seedlings and after that we are looking for a handful of reliable and regular volunteers who can commit to one regular morning a week to help us run the farm. In return they will learn about the wonderful world of syntropic farming and have their hearts full, knowing they are giving back to a worthy cause! If you are interested in volunteering then please contact us on the link at the bottom of this page.
To get our garden started, we are currently running a fund raising campaign to afford the excavation, irrigation system, large amount of composting soil needed, mulch, seedlings, semi mature fruit trees and more! We are hoping to raise $15,000, which is a substantial amount of money, but with it we will be able to really create an abundance of produce and harness a big impact helping those in need.
If you feel called to help us feed those in need we would appreciate any donations so you too can share your blessings!
