How a Food Rescue Initiative Sprouted from Amma’s Teachings


Mary Beth's GreenFriends Satsang

New England Nature and Yoga Day Workshop

How to Save Oodles of Precious Water

It is nearly time for the autumnal equinox. A time of year that reminds us how we are connected to nature through the bounty it provides us - a time to reflect on the relationship between humans and animals who use this time of year to harvest foods to store for the winter.

GreenFriends strives to communicate the importance of treating Nature with respect and gratitude. We invite each of you Green Friends to share your ideas and experiences with your own gardening efforts as well as experiences with nature.
