About the event

Imagine a sanctuary where contented cows graze freely on organic pastures, mirroring their natural diet. This isn’t solely about delectable milk and dairy products; it’s a holistic system designed for complete well-being. The cows’ waste transforms into a treasure, composted into nutrient-rich fertilizer that invigorates the surrounding fields. This, in turn, fosters healthy soil – free from harmful chemicals – that produces fresh, delicious vegetables for our tables. The circle continues as the cows enjoy the very vegetables they helped grow. This symbiotic relationship extends beyond physical health; the close proximity to these gentle giants can even provide a sense of tranquility, a natural remedy for stressful environments. It’s a vision of a sustainable future where both the land and current generations are nourished, body and mind.

RSVP required to attend, with suggested pay-what-you-can donation to support additional and ongoing programs celebrating the work of local artists specializing in Indian arts, music, and cultural traditions. Please reserve free tickets for community members who cannot afford to attend otherwise.
