At Govinda's Eco Community we aim to make a paradigm shift in the perception towards farming, become an education initiative and a model farm community for surrounding cities in Ireland.
The plan for the year 2021
As the first steps towards the application in organic farming and building an eco community we will touch base with Fingal County Council.
We will focus on developing a spiritual yoga construction with the use of renewable and recyclable products.
We will raise €10,000 per month to achieve the goal of €100,000 by December 2021. We have raised €43,000 so far.
At Govinda's Eco Community, we want to be a school for sustainability and teach future generations to easily implement ecological practises in their day-to-day lives. For our farm, the use of non-chemical pesticides, plant pairing, multifunctional farming and biodiversity rich gardens are an effective way to practice a greener future.
GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE & NATURAL HERITAGE
Multi functional zones of the land would incorporate green infrastuctures, to conserve biodiversity, wildlife and ecosystems.
Incorporating nature and biodiversity protects the scenic landscape, benefits nature and supports multiple land uses.
EMPLOYMENT & ECONOMY
With a proportion of the naturally homegrown fruits and vegetables supporting Govinda's restaurant, the project would gradually increase employment as the project moves forward. Local businesses and the community would have access to purchase the produce.
Planting complimentary plants together act as a natural pesticide. With the use of organic methods, it will harness a symbiotic relationship between various crops as well as natural soil nutrition and water conservation.
Cows are vital for success for spirituality and organic farming. With reliance of ox power and manure, the land is fertilised and crops are nourished.
Under this programme, the cows are never slaughtered and are cared for until the end of their lives.
BHAKTI YOGA CENTRE
We want to help people lead a life of spiritual harmony in mental and physical well-being. With our qualified teachers, you can delve into the ancient traditional science to embark a journey of inner awakening. The centre will a place of peace.
Govinda's Eco Community : Become part of the peaceful revolution
By combining tradition with innovation, knowledge with practise, Govinda's Eco Community aspires to be a centre for cow protection, permaculture and education facility in sustainability. In phase 1, we want to raise €100,000 by 31 December 2021 to make the first steps into creating an eco farm. With simply 1000 people donating €10 a month we will achieve this.
