Discover the Healing Power of Sustainable Living & Garden Therapy

Our life may be a garden – a garden that we can tend and develop into a healthy expression of our truest potential. At Villa Kali Ma, our sustainable living and garden therapy program provide participants the opportunity to reconnect with nature through the magic of the garden. As practical lessons are learned for how we may grow our literal gardens, we explore how the garden’s metaphors and its processes are related to how we may create health and wellness in our own lives. Our sustainable living and garden therapy program occur once a week in the burgeoning permaculture garden on-site at Villa Kali Ma. Sustainable living and garden therapy program participants learn insights into the following aspects of our garden:

    • Permaculture
    • Compost and soil
    • Ethnobotanical plants for food and medicine
    • Plant propagation and cultivation

Sustainable living and garden therapy program participants are encouraged to feel empowered to carry some of what they learn back home with them and to implement their new understandings of the garden in a meaningful way into their own lives.

I don't believe it to be an exaggeration to say that Villa Kali Ma saved my life.
I couldn't have asked for a better environment to heal and redirect onto a path towards true living.


This place completely changed my life. I needed a drastic change from the typical recovery environment in order to stay sober long-term. I can honestly say that I love who I am today and I am forever grateful for Villa Kali Ma!


I am so grateful I found Villa Kali Ma, it has truly changed my life. Kay is awesome and the entire team who works there is absolutely amazing. If you need treatment, I highly recommend making this the start to your recovery.
