INDIA: Courtyard of Tulsi Trust Ayurvedic Peace Garden, designed by JC Gale in 2002 in Kankar, C.G., Madya Pradesh - an extra wing has been recently added to enclose the courtyard garden.

The Tulsi Trust has built a fully-staffed Holistic Hospital and a School at Kapsi, near Durga, M.P. India. Both are now Registered and fully recognised by State Government. The buildings enclose a court garden with herbs and flowering fruit bushes for well-being. The herbs are important for ayurvedic medicine and food preparation.

When funds allow, Tulsi hope to have a fountain as a soothing, cooling centre-piece. Minor operations, special malaria and cataract treatments are offered now by well-qualified staff. Surrounding trees and land is essential for crops as the complex is situated in remote forest.

Paul has found that it makes them eager to plant and build (as these involve as much diversity as possible) fruit bushes and trees, useful herbs, vegetables and flowers, arranged curvaceously seats and living arches to hide in, pools and straw bale play houses. It is a great joy to them to see their gardens evolving and growing, and then to use their produce for food and cures.

INDIA: "Shanti Nilayam", future Jaina World Peace College, Rajsamand, South Rajasthan, India. The gardens of exotic flowering trees and bushes have been carefully nurtured out of a formerly barren rocky hill overlooking the great Lake Rajsamand.

Jeffrey, our Founder, has devised a curriculum of courses ranging from the spiritual to the very practical, subsidised by D.F.I.D. to enable Rajasthani villagers to attend free of charge.

Self-help Village Economics, the first Course, has a wide range of ways that villagers can help themselves to overcome poverty e.g. by building linear biogas plants to extract methane for the generation of electricity from dungs, grasses and vegetable peelings.

State Grants are available for these, as well as 80% cost of solar box-cookers and water heaters. The Courses also cover other topics such as marketing coops, permacultural gardening, woodland care.
