Sustainable Living: Organic Garden

Our life may be seen as a garden, a Garden which we are able to tend and develop into a healthy expression of our truest potential. The Garden Program at Vill Kali Ma provides 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 metaphors of the garden and its processes relate to the way we may create health and wellness in our own lives.

The garden program takes place once a week in the burgeoning permaculture garden on site at Villa Kali Ma. Participants learn insights into the following aspects of the garden:

  • Permaculture
  • Compost and Soil
  • Ethnobotanical Plants for Food and Medicine
  • Plant Propagation and Cultivation
  • Harvest and Use: Garden 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. Villa Kali Ma was more than able to provide a safe healing environment for me to cultivate a strong spiritual connection through yoga, meditation, and an organic lifestyle. 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. I was introduced to many different types of therapy, healing and recovery options. I was able to choose what works for me and continue them outside of treatment once I went home. VKM is truly a tranquil place to start healing. If you are looking for treatment I would highly recommend making this the start to your recovery."
