Gardens & Grounds
For decades our fields and gardens have inspired thousands of people and produced fabulous vegetables here at the Ashram. Our classic New England landscape features a stream, approximately 10 acres of fields, walking paths, and a stream-fed pond. Along the paths through the fields, you’ll find wild asparagus, thyme, sorrel, and a number of heirloom trees & shrubs tucked away, blooming throughout the growing seasons. The organic fruits & vegetables we grow are shared with our neighbors through our food relief program, Guru Nanak’s Kitchen. With the generosity of our gardeners, cooks, and donors, we provide food to our neighbors in need. And maintain our little corner of the world!
Ashram gardeners meet year-round to plan and prepare the fields and grounds. Throughout the years we have practiced various organic gardening methods, built raised beds, used hoops to extend the growing season, explored no-till intensive growing methods, built irrigation… We love gardening! The soil is rich and the land shares its bounty regularly. What might you find in the garden? Depending on the time of year you’ll find people:
- Picking & packing garden produce
- Weeding & pruning
- Doing bug & insect patrol
- Preparing for our next growing season!
