The Hostel has four main gardens; The Secret Garden is our main kitchen garden and provides daily produce for use in our kitchen’s preparation of a vegetarian meal every night. In addition, we have an excellent herb garden and we have just started cultivating mushroom colonies.

After extensive clearing and ground preparation, we have also established the Lake Garden, consisting of a fenced vegetable garden, a large area of no-till surrounding the west side of the lake and a small developing orchard of fruit trees. We are watering this area with a solar-powered water pump, feeding water from the lake.
