Are you ready to learn how to design a natural, empowered and self-sufficient permaculture space? Join us at the Krishna Village to transform the way you live in the world and relate to your environment. Your tribe is waiting for you!


Permaculture is a practical and ecological design science. By using appropriate and intelligent design principles, we learn to work with, rather than against nature at every level of the human environment.

Daily yoga sessions, nourishing food and a beautiful natural setting help to harmonise body, mind and soul in service of us co-creating a more beautiful world.
