New Vrindaban has had a focus on farming and rural food security for many years, as Srila Prabhupada earmarked this New Vrindaban project as an example of sustainability to the world.
We are currently working towards sustainable organic agriculture. We have a community garden underway and many of the residents also maintain their own gardens as well.
On the way to the Goshala, our cow sanctuary, you’ll see the Garden of Gratitude where we grow many of the flowers that we use for our daily temple programs.
Further afield, we have two fully operational high-tunnels which are 30 feet wide and 96 feet long. These enable us to grow vegetables year-round to provide for our community, despite the cold West Virginia winters.
