Good clean healthy food is the key to wellness. If people don't have healthy food available (as well as clean air and water) life becomes burdened with issues ranging from malnutrition to stress and fear. Illnesses, like diabetes and heart disease, become prominent in society in part due to consumption of foods with little nutritional value, too much sugar and pesticide residues just to name a few. Additionally, there is a growing number of unnecessary allergies brought about by too heavily depending on too few low value food sources. If we look at the quality of the foods being pushed through our system it becomes obvious change on all levels is needed.
Your donations support our programs and our service. Please give generously so we can empower as many as possible to eat well, live well and be well.
What is Kula Kamala Foundation doing?
Sundays at 12:30pm the Ashram opens its doors to everyone for a healthy, well balanced, whole food based, nourishing vegetarian meal. The meal is by donation. If a donation is not possible then a little service at the ashram is a wonderful alternative. We always have something that needs a little loving attention. Community Meals are just one of our methods of feeding those in need. Feeding, nourishing and integrating. We serve all people, no matter their cultural-socio-economic status. All meals at the ashram are predominantly vegan with vegetarian options, whole food based, organic when possible, gluten free, and made and served with love.
Please note we will not hold the Community Meal on Sunday October 9, 2016. Please join us at the Peace & Love March at the Rose Garden at City Park in Reading! See more info below.
Kula Kamala Foundation practices sustainable, chemical pesticide free gardening, using organic seeds and the Hugelkultur method. Hugelkultur is an environmentally friendly mound cropping method that produces an abundance of wholesome veggies and fruits. In 2017 we intend to double the size of the Hugelkultur. We are also in the process of developing indoor gardens utilizing traditional box methods and we are investigating hydroponics. By having both in- and out-door gardens, and through generous donations from like-minded people and organizations, such as B&H Organics, who donate a seasonal CSA to the Community Meal program, we will be able to sustain our offerings throughout the year and grow them to reach more people in need. Any surplus grown in our gardens is donated to local food banks.
Please note that we deeply appreciate financial donations and volunteerism, however we do not accept unsolicited donations of food or compost. Thank you for supporting our dedication to pure food, pure love, pure devotion, and ahimsa (non-violence & non-harming).
Please visit our partner in peace & health, B & H Organics, and support their amazing farm!
ONGOING & UPCOMING PROGRAMS
Kula Kamala Ashram coordinates and cooperates with other local and regional organizations, agencies and groups to empower health and wellness. In 2016 we worked cooperatively with the Reading Area Peace Kitchen in hosting the 7th annual Peace & Love March, an event meant to elevate the vibration of Reading and provide food for those who are hungry.
