The Permaculture Action Day is an opportunity for anyone who is interested in Permaculture to come serve at the Yoga Farm and learn through hands-on activities. There will be a special Permaculture lecture and workshop offered to participants as part of the program. Participants offer four to five hours of selfless hands-on service and enjoy the daily schedule with a free Satsang (meditation and chanting), Yoga class, Permaculture lectures, and two organic vegetarian meals.
This one-day program will be part of the Karma Yoga week. Participants may come for solely the Permaculture Action Day or for the whole Karma Yoga Week. Karma Yoga is service done without selfish expectations. Karma Yogis work four hours a day and have a 50% reduction on accommodations. Gardening, maintenance, building and cooking skills are especially welcome. To register seperately for Karma Yoga Week, click here.
