Welcome to May edition of our Green Newsletter. As we all know, COVID 19 has changed the global landscape. We hope that the present insights will remain in the new normal – how we value and appreciate a simple lifestyle, time for personal reflection and nourishment of communities.

Sister Jayanti visits Tapovan in April: Class took place in this lovely and saw the very beautiful Meditation Hall for the first time. Yogic Agriculture has been taken up in a big way here, with regular training for BK/Contacts Farmers taking place. Experts from various areas of agriculture gather here to help as well.
