Sacred Agriculture - A walk in the garden
Hello.

Today I made a short video to show the garden I created at the farm where I'm staying. I also walk around the property to show all the fruits growing in abundance.

Life is great and getting better every day. Everyone can do this if they can overcome fear and start willing their own will, not that of the dominating culture.



Paix, Amour et Lumiere

omg watchdog... that was so impressive!! That garden is just massive! It might as well be my dream/goal to live in a place like that.

I have a good gardening friend who lives in florida, and he was showing me photo's of his current work in progress garden last night.... and it so makes me want to move south!! I'm in the very northwestern tip of Indiana... and practically everything I'm growing has just started! My cucumbers and tomatoes are maybe 6 inches tall. My watermellon has just sprouted...... many of the things I'm growing have just sprouted. Can't even tell you how thrilled I am that your having this experience. I'm stunned. A+ for you... can't wait to see an update. Grin Clap

You're lucky. I live in Ontario where "spring planting" starts with lighting the ground on fire until it thaws enough to start digging.

Our growing season only lasts 5 weeks, but we've adapted seeds to compensate. They grow so fast you might be entwined by them if you get too close. We lose a lot of toddlers that way.

We like to "camp out" overnight right next to the giant zucchini. We feel so much better in the morning. Now you know why Canadians are always so polite.

No need to worry about me ever moving to Ontario.... but the zucchini camp out you speak of sounds quite intriguing. Tongue Icon_biggrin

Sleeping in a garden is awesome!

I did that in California for 1 1/2 months. My tent was at the edge of a huge garden and a few feet from the fence where lived goats, sheep, and cows. Heck I often found a few goats sleeping in the shade of my tent and them waking me up in the morning.

It's a great feeling to go out in the garden and collect tomatoes, green peppers, onions, eggplants and herbs to make a spaghetti sauce. Then use a potato peeler to make fettuccine-like strips with zucchini and produce lunch.

I'm from Quebec, Canada, so I know about the short growing season. This is WHY I came to the south to experiment with year-round gardening. I may push the envelop a bit more in the future and go even more south in South America and add more fruit trees to the mix.

The farm I'm at is great, but it's still not the community I'm looking for. I'm not a Krishna and don't plan to convert. The only reason they let me in their ashram is because none of them know how to garden, and they're to busy reading the Bhagavad Gita and chanting the Hare Krishna mantra. I also came to the conclusion that the teachings of their religion/sect have forced them into seeing themselves as soul, not the body they live in. And as a consequence they tend to reject the material world and cannot see "God" in nature. For me gardening is a form of devotion and a sacred experience. But they worship by reading books, talking about Krishna, converting people, chanting his name, and doing strange rituals in the temple such as dressing up dolls, bathing dolls, feeding dolls, putting them to sleep, etc. And they have also been told that people fall into four categories (i.e. the cast system), so most people don't really want to find themselves at the bottom of the totem pole, sort to speak. Working in the garden is just one step above the janitor, which is almost a dogs life. And then there is the lure of Babylon and money, something that has a grip on them just like most non-religious people, except they perceive themselves as being "more enlightened" than the common man.

I could go on and on...

Hehehe :-)
