Seeking Farmers & Builders


We are in the pioneer stages of developing the Eco Village.  We need more people to build living infrastructure and colony plots.  Seasonal facilities will be constructed for workers, then for future guests.

Plots to develop this year are Go Shala foundation (for future cows), Kitchen, Patha Shala (Learning Center), Yoga Shala and Yajna Shala.

We will provide an opportunity to learn aspects of Vedic culture. We learn hands-on about Natural Building, Permaculture Farming, Building shelters, Cows and Ox care & Natural Fibers for Clothing. 

We have the land and clear mission to manifest the vision of Varnasrama villages, as proposed by Srila Prabhupada and our Acharyas.  Varnasrama provides self sufficiency and fulfills the material and spiritual needs of our community and the next generation.

We grow seasonal crops and maintain nut & fruit orchards and flower gardens.  Our root cellar holds 3,000 + pounds of crops and preserves.

Current Farm goals:

  • Expand production in existing garden space
  • Build more moveable greenhouses 
  • Build Greenhouse @ Maharaj’s cabin for spring starts 
  • Build Underground Greenhouse (Walipini)
  • Three season living infrastructure for farm workers
  • Expand irrigation in colony
