Maitripa Tara School nature and permaculture approach, connects the child to the natural world through our urban permaculture garden and activities.
An urban permaculture garden will continue to expand as part of our mission to connect the child with nature, even within the city. Between parents, children, and other members of the community we intend to develop, around our building, and urban garden with the basic permaculture principles of “earth care, people care and fair share”. We hope this on-going work will establish in our community the understanding that, “along with taking care of the earth, we need to equally take care of people”.
As this project develops, the Gardens will provide hands-on and place-based education in sustainable gardening, healthy nutrition, and permaculture in our urban setting for children at Tara School.
