The buildings enclose acourt 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.

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.
