After much planning, the ashram is ready to put in a pond this year. This pond will not only beautify the grounds and provide a habitat for wetland wildlife but will be a major step forward in implementing our ashram-wide permaculture plan. Water is life in the desert and this pond will allow us to store and use the abundant water that comes to us from the acequias. By keeping the water on the ashram land and integrating it into the landscape we will be able to both grow more food and contribute to nurturing this verdant and sacred valley. In this way we do our little part to steward our great Mother Earth.
