VEGETABLE MARKET GARDEN STARTED IN 2019
2021 brings big changes for the MA Center Vegetable Gardens, with the addition of organic heirloom seedlings available for sale to the community!
Amma advised the garden team to let the gardens rest this year due to the impending water crisis and drought, so the team quickly pivoted to the seedling project in a new greenhouse built in March. Swamini Ambikamrita Prana performed a blessing ceremony in the greenhouse to bless the seedlings and the efforts of garden Sevites.
The team has been successfully growing many beautiful heirloom plants from certified organic seeds, and the sales to the community have been going very well. After all, Amma always asks Her children to try to grow some organic food, even if we only have a little space. So although there won’t be a vegetable garden this year at the MA Center, the community has been quite enthused about growing their own food, planning to grow in pots on balconies, in community gardens and in their own backyards!
May Amma’s grace bless everyone’s efforts for a beautiful and bountiful harvest!
