The Happy Farms actively promote mindfulness, community-building and sustainability. Those working on the farms (the “Happy Farmers”!) cultivate the land mindfully, and together with Plum Village monks, host retreats, guided tours, and workshops.
We are honoured to be fulfilling Thich Nhat Hanh’s dream of establish the farms, and turning the land into a beautiful sanctuary for farmers, retreatants and volunteers. The Happy Farms offers a nurturing environment in which to practice, heal and reconnect with Mother Earth through agriculture.
“You are a gardener, and you have in your hands the power to transform garbage into flowers, into fruit, into vegetables. You don’t throw anything away, because you are not afraid of garbage. Your hands are capable of transforming it into flowers, or lettuce, or cucumbers.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh in You Are Here: Discovering the Magic of the Present Moment
