A key principle of self sufficiency is to grow one’s own food. At Gita Nagari we cultivated an acre in 2009, 3 acres in 2010, 5 acres in 2011 and 13 acres in 2012, and each time harvested an abundant crop. We had to supplement our harvests with other sources because we do not grow everything we eat…yet! We took a break in 2013 and 2014 as we acquired a dairy herd.
Being inspired from previous years' seasons, and due to requests for produce, we plan to cultivate 20 acres in 2015. This requires a focused effort so please join us in any manner that suits your schedule and interests, and experience the fulfillment that comes from working so closely with Mother Nature.
