The Permaculture Service 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. All who attend will have the opportunity to engage in 4 hours of selfless hands-on service and enjoy the daily schedule with a free Satsang (meditation and chanting), Yoga class, Permaculture lecture, and two organic vegetarian meals.
This one-day program will coincide with Open House - Intro to Sivananda Yoga. Participants may come for solely the Permaculture Service Day or also participate in the Open House.
