What’s Growing

As stewards of the planet, we need to think of the larger, spiritual role our gardens play. Our intention at Peace Village is to live in harmony with the natural world. Experimenting, innovating, and implementing ways to live more sustainably is paramount to preserving our culture for the generations to come. It is in this light that we currently nurture two edible gardens.

Family Home-stead Garden :

We hope to model that by producing more and consuming less, families can live a healthy lifestyle on an organic diet, save money by growing their own organic produce, and bring up the net worth of their most valuable asset, their home. Excited about actualizing this dream, we’ve been working towards establishing a grocery store right on our land! Produce harvested, with love, care, patience, and hardwork will be available for sale to the community.

Children’s garden :

We need to remember why it’s important to teach our children how to take care of themselves and the planet they will inherit. Gardens are wonderful classrooms, a place to home school biology, healthy eating habits and, more importantly, an appreciation of the wonder of life. The Children’s Garden is a child’s haven for expeditionary learning. Squashes crawling out of barrels onto teepee structures to create a play house, a baby strawberry peeking through the shade of the large pumpkin leaves planted in a personal barrel, harvesting ingredients to decorate their very own pizza, or buried treasures to be cooked up as roasted potatoes! Endulging their senses and imagination will give way to experiential learning never to be forgotten. Giving the gift of living healthier lives while providing for themselves even on a small scale through gardening and husbandry projects is an essential step toward preserving our culture and living sustainably in harmony with nature.
