World Environment Day – Facts on Climate Change

Lessons from gardening 🌸😎

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

1 – As pouring water on the root of a tree energizes the trunk, branches, twigs and everything else, and as supplying food to the stomach enlivens the senses and limbs of the body, by simply engaging in selfless spiritual activity we water the root of our existence, which nourishes the self in the most complete way, and all aspects of our lives fall perfectly into place.

2 – The Tulasi plant was very weak and it was windy. But by getting the right support at the right time and at the right spot, she stabilized. If we tied the knot a little above or a little below, then she would break. If we delayed the tying of the knot, then she would break. In the same way, we need the right support in our bhakti at the right time and spot.

More Garden Updates! – Spring Cleaning :)

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This time around we did some maintenance work. It was a fun spring cleaning session with our Mantra Lounge volunteers, headed by our plant expert Stephanie! We have cucumbers coming up, tomato plants growing big and strong, and some donated peppers and tomato plants just got planted. We also have a big oregano plant building up more and more right next to our baby cilantro sprouts.

We trimmed up and pulled out some unneeded greenery and everything is looking much neater now.

On the other end, in the front yard, Jude did some more clean-up work, with which we’re going to start fresh with flowers and more. More on the front yard plan coming soon!

For now, check out these awesome pictures of our mini-garden!

Permaculture! Mantra Lounge garden updates: Kale, cilantro, basil and more soon!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Permaculture started with the idea of turning trashed suburban backyards into sustainable gardens, in which the natural environment dictated the garden’s plan and purpose.

As you may have seen on our social media, we started a little garden as an effort to grow some of our own veggies for Mantra Lounge. It is a very small effort, but we’re trying! Check out these little guys shooting up in our mini garden!

Exciting to see!

Here’s a cool article that shows a wonderful example from Australia!
