Introduction to Organic Gardening: Do’s and Don’ts
December 1, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Osho Bodhisattva Meditation Garden is not just a space for meditation but is also an organic, pesticide- and herbicide-free edible garden for conscious education of the public about edible landscaping with native and pollinator-friendly plants. We are 100% vegan and non-violent, and our garden is a certified Wildlife Habitat. 2 rescued bunnies help to naturally fertilize the Garden, rescued community cats protect it against ruthless pests 🦎.
We raise monarch, white peacock & zebra longwing butterflies 🦋 and support a multitude of other life forms 🐛 🦉. We promote the principles of biodynamics, permaculture and natural cycling of organic matter. We grow and share food with our fellow meditators and friends of the Garden, big and small. Non-human friends – birds, butterflies, bees, other pollinators, beneficial insects and mammals – all play their role and find food and shelter in Osho Bodhisattva Garden.
And we can teach you how to do all of that in your own backyard! It’s fun and educational, plus you can grow your food and protect the Earth at the same time. Step by step, you will learn how to grow food not dependent on synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, and how to “shop” for food in your own backyard instead of a supermarket.
Text us on the day of the tour to confirm that you’re coming or if you changed your mind. Please include your name in the text. The exact address of the garden and the phone number will be sent to you in a confirmation email.
Wear a long sleeve shirt and pants to protect yourself from sun and mosquitoes, and comfortable closed-toe shoes. Bring your water bottle with you.
This event will be automatically cancelled in case of rain. If it rains at 4pm, you don’t need to text for cancellation.
