Welcome to Hemchan, Kumarie, Ajay & Rasala!

Our organic growers have arrived from sunny Florida into a wintry Pennsylvania - and are settling in quickly and effectively!  Their 35 x 120 greenhouse is practically up, 1000s and 1000s of brassica crops have been seeded, they are cooking, cleaning, teaching the children, and just having lots of fun!  The children will be attending the K12 Agora Cyber School, online, with lots of farm-based learning as well.

We are delighted for them to be fully engaged in the agriculture facet of our Project.  We have been liaising with various affiliated Projects based in the Cities and have proposed to offer them fresh, organic produce for their Kitchens, as well as CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares for their community members.  There has been an encouraging response.  We have also committed to grow for a local organic growers co-operative.  So, it is going to be a very exciting and busy growing season!

Please do stop by for a visit or overnight stay and check out the developments, and have some time out for yourself too, in our peaceful environment.  We guarantee to serve you sumptuous vegetarian meals!
