Kailash Ecovillage has several different types of gardens and several programs to manage them. About one third of our garden space is dedicated to individual garden plots where each gardener manages their own space. The other two thirds are split between multiple ornamental gardens, the group-managed gardens,  and fruit trees, berry patches, and grapes.

Gardening is an important center of community activity. We meet our fellow residents as well as neighbors from the greater community in the gardens. The beauty of the gardens as well as the sense of accomplishment raising our own food and creating beautiful spaces is a source of inspiration.
