History of the Centre Buildings Organic Gardens Programs Inauguration ~ April 10, 2010

´Today, when we think of the study of our dwelling place our thoughts turn to the earth and Mother Nature... We may divide this study into four areas: ‡ understanding the cycles of nature, ‡ becoming aware of the effects of pollution, ‡ learning how to restore nature to its pristine beauty, and ‡ putting into practice methods to preserve the purity of nature.µ - ´Ecology of the Soul,µ by Rajinder Singh.

Kind Hearts are the gardens; Kind Thoughts are the roots; Kind words are the blossoms; Kind deeds are the fruits. - Sant Kirpal Singh
