Homa Farming in Curacavi, Chile

Ms. Karina Ohme from Curacavi, Chile tells her experience of the Amazing recovery of almond and fig trees with Homa Therapy
     In March 2013, we realized a long awaited dream: 'Satsang,' a beautiful farm with native forest, silence and harmony, located a few kilometers outside Santiago de Chile.
     We started immediately to perform the Homa Fires and we have seen a surprising recovery of the old fruit trees. René, (photo right picking almonds), our gardener, who lives and works on this plot since 19 years, was surprised to see the almonds loaded with fruits this summer. Just two years ago, his suggestion was to cut them, since they were full of downy mildew and partially moth-eaten, practically dry and without giving any almonds.

Homa Garden in Cochiguaz, Elqui Valley, Chile

      Cecilia and Francisco Fernandez, reporting their HOMA garden success in spite of living in an extreme climate:
"Dear friends, here some photos of our fruits such as peaches, grapefruit, apples, chestnuts, walnuts, figs and tunas. They are in full production with the help of Homa Therapy and despite the very high temperatures. We have seen how the peach trees have improved with continued application of Agnihotra ash. 
Loving greetings from Cochiguaz, Elqui Valley, Chile"

“Wake Up Before It’s Too Late:” New UN Report Calls for Dramatic Shift Toward Natural Agriculture

Even as the United States government continues to push for the use of more chemically-intensive and corporate-dominated farming methods such as GMOs and monoculture-based crops, the United Nations is once against sounding the alarm about the urgent need to return to (and develop) a more sustainable, natural and organic system.

That was the key point of a new publication from the UN Commission on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) titled “Trade and Environment Review 2013: Wake Up Before It’s Too Late,” which included contributions from more than 60 experts around the world.

Water harvesting

Bruce Johnson:
"We finally got the big rain we were waiting for. The best rain in the last 25 years, they say. Tapovan is looking wonderfully green and lush. The big work which Aaron and Anne did on the water harvesting has paid off in a very big way. As you can see from the pictures, our dry creek bed has been transformed into a series of beautiful pools through the extensive rainwater harvesting that we have completed."

Our Homa Experience in Our Small Garden

Here everything is in good progress. We are sending you some pictures of the vegetables from our little HOMA ORGANIC GARDEN in Amalner city, Maharashtra which is in the dry land region of Central India where temperatures reach up to 48 degrees in summer.

We planted vegetables like lady finger, two different types of gourd, beans, lemons, etc. We do daily sunrise & sunset Agnihotra & regularly some Om Trambakam Homa.

We are also giving the Agnihotra ash & Homa ash regularly to the plants and we are getting beautiful results. The food quality & quantity is really surprising. In the picture you can see the vegetables. We harvest every 2 to 3 days and even though the plot is small, we get enough for our family of 4 and other people who know about our organic Homa garden come to buy our vegies because of their taste and quality. We are sending much love to everyone.

Gopal Mehta's Story

apples
peaches

Gopal Mehta, a leading apple and stone-fruit orchardist, started experimenting with the environment-friendly mode of farming in the late 1990s in view of the rising cost of inputs and poor returns. Mehta, who is also the chairman of the Himachal Organic Farmers’ Association, maintains that the continuous use of chemical fertilisers and chemical sprays is doing more harm than good to the orchards of Himachal Pradesh.

Sericulture

"I started doing Agnihotra in my green house and in a few weeks time it showed results. First the birds moved in; then came the predators to destroy the attack of whiteflies on gerbera plants in the green house. The Resonance Point was then set up and from then on there was no stopping us. Results flowed one after the other. Here are some of my experiences which I want to share with you."

sodic soil

  • In Tapovan when we first started Homa Farming the soil was seriously deficient in all the major and minor nutrients.
  • There was high salinity.
  • Topsoil layer reduced to less than 5 cm (2 inches) in parts.
