Organic community farm
History and today’s organisation
Buddha Garden began in 2000 when Priya took over about an acre and a half of land that was to become the vegetable garden of Siddhartha Farm. At that time the red clay soil was very eroded and almost devoid of vegetation. Today, Buddha Garden grows a great variety of fruit and vegetables. A number of educational programs on sustainable food growing are also organised.
Vision & Mission
The vision of Buddha Garden too grow food with love and awareness for the community of Auroville; food that nourishes every part of our being, using methods that nurture the earth. The aim is to create a sustainable farm that is financially viable and in this process, provide a place to share an adventure. In an alive and vibrant environment, we have the opportunity to learn together about organic farming, about Auroville and about ourselves.
Leaders & Team
A permanent team of 5 people, plus a number of volunteers making up a team of about 15 at present.
