Aloe vera is a plant that looks like a cactus, but is actually a member of the lily family. The particular kind of Aloe vera is used for natural remedies and its leaves contain a gel that is rich in therapeutic properties. Aloe appears to inhibit infection and promote healing of minor burns and wounds, and possibly of skin affected by diseases such as psoriasis. Dried aloe latex is used, with caution, as a drastic cathartic. Aloe vera is a perennial crop. The first cut is taken one year after planting. The plant is harvested for its fresh leaves.

Lemongrass, is a perennial herb widely cultivated in the tropics and subtropics. The reported adaptation zone for lemongrass is 18 to 29oC with an annual precipitation of 0.7 to 4.1 meters with a soil pH of 5.0 to 5.8. Since the plants rarely flower or set seed, propagation is by root or plant division. The plants are harvested mechanically or manually about four times each year with the productive life span between four and eight years. In the present experiment, the crop was harvested after 90 days of planting.

Homa Farm: Bhrugu Aranya
"In our concentric circle garden we grow vegetables and herbs. When we came here, of course it was just a field which had not been gardened. This is not a farming area. The soil is very bad, acidic. We kept working the soil and things were growing beautifully. And then we felt we should have the soil tested. So we tested it and it was tested very acidic (pH = 4.4) and the people in the department where we had it tested said to us, 'We are sorry to let you know that nothing will grow here.' But as you can see from the pictures, everything is growing here."

"I would like to share an experience we had in the village of Tenjo, close to the capital, Bogota. There, we have a lot of different crops on our small farm. It is in our garden where we use all the techniques of Homa Therapy in the preparation of the land, in the irrigation, spraying Agnihotra ash water against bugs, etc., in short, all we can do with Homa Therapy."

Homa Farm: Tapovan
Parola, District: Jalgaon
"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."
