Amritapuri Organic Garden: Land of love and life
Vast organic gardens and nature sanctuaries are now flourishing upon what used to be barren land in Amritapuri. Because the fields were built over swamp filled with sand and red clay, neighbours warned it was unlikely anything could grow. But the perseverance of a few people dedicated to reviving the land has now resulted in these beautiful habitats.
Today, the plots provide food and herbal medicines, as well as sheltered protection for local wildlife. The project has also created a renewed sense of gratitude and respect for the Earth.
As Amma says, "Every day, spend some quiet time in Nature and learn to listen to her silent wisdom."
