Flower Garden

From November till the beginning of December 2017

seva, garden, bhakti marga

For our flower garden, we are looking for people with garden experience.

General information

All our summer flowers are used for worshiping, pujas or garlands. Due to the rocky soil, each garden task is a heavy work. Dry summers and a lack of water can mean long working hours, like early watering and carrying the water by hand to the plants. Intensive, large flower beds need to be weeded regularly. This requires a solid knowledge of perennial plants. Therefore, you should be able to recognize perennials from weeds - even at an early stage of growing.

November

  • Weeding: It might sound simple - but a good plant knowledge is necessary. Our flower beds are kept in a natural style. Therefore, you should know, which plant can stay and which plant needs to go.
  • Flower Beds: In order to minimize the growth of weeds, we apply wood chips on all flower beds.
  • Watering: Due to the weather, we might have to water the plants early in the morning (until 8 am) or late in the evening (after 8 pm). Most of it must be done by hand.

URGENT! Till the middle of November 2 seva helpers (men!) needed for 2 weeks!

Our Flower garden is looking for 2 strong and healthy prabhus, who would like to come and do seva with us at Shree Peetha Nilaya, as soon as possible, for the next 2 weeks!

Seva duties: we have to dig out all the summer flowers and to plant new spring bulbs. Only strong and healthy prabhus are welcome, who are able to use a pick axe!

Please, write directly an email to seva@bhaktimarga.org if you did come already here for seva program. If this is your first seva program, than please fill in the online seva application form using this link:
