In Hinduism, the cow is considered special and sacred, as she gives and gives not only to her own young but to humans as well. She is the graceful symbol of ever-giving, undemanding provider to so many. For this there is much gratitude. In this spirit, it is always a joy to visit the cows and workers at the local temple cow shed 🌸🐮🌸 #symbol #reverance #grace #sacred #honour #gentleness #mother #provider #milk #cow #holycow #ghomata #ghoshala #villagelife #greensakthi #vellore #sripuram #tamilnadu #india #hinduism #om

Each one of these bits of trash will be separated by hand and turned into compost or recycled. This is how we get it done at Amma’s local waste management station 👍 #trash #compost #scraps #wastemanagement #recycle #exnora #zerowaste #community #together #ecoindia #greenliving #biodegradabile #lovingearth #environment #education #future #planetearth #sustainability #trees #plants #greensakthi #vellore #tamilnadu #india #cleanindia #activism #greenactivism #villagelife

This little green wagon is full of ready-packed nutrient-rich vermicompost made right here at EXNORA - Amma’s local waste management station. Vermicompost is the end-product of the breakdown of organic matter by earthworms. It contains water-soluble nutrients and is an excellent organic fertilizer and soil conditioner. It is a wonderful, sustainable, organic practice for small scale farming. 🐛 #worms #compost #vermicompost #vermicomposting #organic #sustainable #nutrientrich #science #foodwaste #wastemanagement #exnora #zerowaste #ecoindia #greenliving #biodegradabile #mothernature #environment #education #motherearth #lovingearth #sustainability #trees #plants #greensakthi #vellore #tamilnadu #india

Here in our small rural village in India where Green Sakthi is based, we greet and thank each other by putting our hands together towards our heart. This action means - I recognise the divine nature within you. Sometimes we forget, but nature is on the inside too🌺 #nature #divinenature #villagelife #greeting #hello #thankyou #iloveyou #love #namaste #recognise #naturewithin #school #kids #education #greeneducation #mothernature #motherearth #lovingearth #trees #plants #flowers #greensakthi #vellore #tamilnadu #india

Tucked away in the hidden heart of our Green Sakthi nursery lives a very green Saraswati - Goddess of wisdom and learning. She sits playing her Veena amidst the trees and nature, happily weathered by sun, rain and devotion. She reminds us to use all the wisdom available to us to nurture nature and our beautiful planet. She’s a real beauty. #wisdom #greenwisdom #saraswati #greenliving #planetearth #motherearth #mothernature #regenerate #regeneration #cultivate #education #ecology #knowledge #thefuture #hinduism #symbols #goddess #lovingearth #kindness #trees #nature #greensakthi #mythology #vellore #tamilnadu #India

While they do their abacus demo for international guests (as you do), we can’t help but notice that all those trees you see behind the kids did not exist 3 years ago. Not one! Each and every one of those trees was planted with love by our school kids. How glorious. ✌️ #green #school #schoolgarden #gardeners #littlegardeners #kids #greenthumb #trees #plants #plantatree #giveback #oxygen #education #greeneducation #treelove #mothernature #motherearth #lovingearth #sustainability #eco #ecoindia #greenliving #narayanividyalaya #vellore #tamilnadu #india #greensakthi

A sick day with our eldest daughter a few days ago got us side by side making black sesame oil, elderberry syrup and a sourdough mother. This is her pic and sweet label. Love spending time with her like this. #greensakthi #permaculture #kitchenwitch #herbs #herbalism #alchemy #foodasmedicine #guthealth

I love how the colours intensify sometimes when fermentation kicks in. Carrot and purple cauliflower ferment with veggies bought @organicmojo who are @torquayfarmersmarket every Saturday. Cauliflower is one of the many forms of prebiotic foods available in this wonderful medicine chest we call nature. Ferment it and you have the form of Alchemy our forefathers cherished so deeply when it came to ensuring harvests were not wasted. Grow veg or buy it from people who understand the microorganism of healthy, well nourished, spray free soil. For more about us, our fermentation courses and ancestral cooking classes head over to Mumma Care on Facebook. #guthealth #microbiome #gapsdiet #mediterraneanfood #greensakthi #paleo #keto #scd #jerf #nourishingtraditions #geelong #surfcoast #countrylife

Stevie fell over this morning, scraping her knee. "What shall we do?" I asked her. "We'll wash it but are there any herbs you'd like to use?" "Chamomile! Yarrow! Chickweed!" She said. Off she went to gather this wonderful weed to make into her own poultice. My children are often by my side as I garden, cook, photograph and write. Hopefully, these old wives tales will enter their hearts and minds for generations of home herbalism to come. This is her photograph too. #miniherbalist #oldwivestales #wisewoman #littlewisewoman #herbalism #chickweed #permaculture #greensakthi

Nettle from our garden boiled along with carrots to bring flavour, nutrition and yogini bliss. My first introduction to nettle came when I lived in a farm house in the English country side. One day, Feeling adventurous, I borrowed a bike and headed down a beautiful innocent-looking country lane. It was lush and green and full of promise and Enid Blyton fairy tale quality. At a point, the lane narrowed and the grasses on either side grew thick and waist height and to my surprise and dismay, felt myself picking up speed. Madly, desperately and involuntarily comically, squeezing the hand brakes of this half working bike, while careening downhill in a short skirt and bare legs, I hit a never-ending nettle patch. Hurtling downwards, ever picking up speed and bumping along on various stones that left me momentarily airborne, I hung on, at the same time reclaiming the seat for my bottom and finding the pedals again that were twirling around maniacally on their own. I squeezed the useless brakes for dear life over and over again as the nettle thrashed my hands and whipped my bare legs. Ow, ow, ow, ow, I bleated and yelled to the lonely track with every shardy, electric shock for what seemed like a good two to three solid minutes. All the while, trying to be half composed in case anyone was actually around, until finally it was over. My nettle initiation was complete. "You fucker!" I turned around and called back to it hoping I would never see it again. Until I met @susunsweed who again initiated me into the wisdom of nettle, making me love it and laugh about our first crazy meeting over and over again. Now abundant in our veggie patch, our very good Tibetan friends shared their love for nettle. They explained to me that the first Tibetan Buddhist yogi, Milarepa is famed to have survived 12 years in a cave eating very little other than nettle. When he was discovered, his skin had turned green from this incredibly sustaining plant. Now, familiar with him as another unseen teacher, i think of him and the unpredictability of that English country lane as I pick our bounty for the family meal and wonder about the many gifts nettle bestows. #nettle #herbalism #greensakthi
