Organic Vegetable Garden - Grow with Love
...says Marcus Tullius Cicero, a famous Roman author and politician of ancient times. Well, Pranayama Garden has both!
Being in the garden and connecting in this way with nature is a passion of Pranayama Garden and Art Café founder Pi Pat. It is in her garden where she finds peace and happiness. But seeing plants grow, taking in the soothing green and the air full of prana is pure joy for everybody visiting this gorgeous place. It is easy to come to a state of true rest in this kind of environment – Pranayama Garden is not on the beach, but it certainly provides a very special kind of energy just a few hundred meters away from the seaside!
And the garden is rich: This year Pranayama Garden is growing sweet potato, pumpkin, eggplant, lettuce, mushrooms, beans and bean sprouts. The leafy greens come as spinach, morning glory and various local types, of unknown English names, but amazing taste! And there are herbs and spices like basil, lemongrass, chili and ginger as well as fruits like water melon, pineapple, mango, papaya and of course banana.
All produce of Pranayama Garden goes into the kitchen of Art Café and Vipassana Café to make sure for 100% organic ingredients in our famous spring rolls and Pad Thai noodles.
Organic gardening means to refrain from the use of any chemicals, including artificial fertilizer. To regenerate the soil the gardeners mix leaves with coconut husk, fruit and vegetable scraps from Art Café and organic soil, watering it and having it sit for about three months to create the richest topsoil available. The whole garden covers nearly 1 rai, a Thai measuring unit equaling about 1.600m² - space for enough beds to also feed the participants of a workshop or retreat!
