The Ahimsa Project is focusing on developing projects for 2024. A current list of projects include:
BERKS COUNTY, PA
BERKS COUNTY, PA
Our first project in 2024 will be reforesting a 1/2 acre at Kula Kamala Foundation and Yoga Ashram in Berks County, PA. The foundation has provided us with the space to reforest and as another measure to support their community.
What our plantings will do for the community even in the early years?
Produce 576 lbs of Oxygen
Store 216 lbs of carbon
Save 5944 gallons of water evaporation
Cools the community (about 5 air conditioners working for 1000 hours!)
We will be focused on native plants and trees, which will include a mix of fruit and nut trees to be used by wildlife, as well as the foundation's kitchens, and to support their work with food donations for area food banks.
Planting trees are one of the easiest and quickest ways for us to help improve air and water quality and capture greenhouse gases. We benefit globally wherever a tree is planted. Support this project today and take a big step in climate action.
Our second project The Ahimsa Project will be working on in 2024 is building an Agroforestry site.
One program that has been explored by other organizations is to rent farmland from farmers to install agroforestry tracks which would be turned over to the farmer when developed. This helps the farmers receive rent on land that is not producing goods while these trees mature. Agroforestry is one of the solutions the U.N.’s FAO has recommended to mitigate climate change while protecting food systems.
This next phase would rent annually 1 acre of land in Trappe, PA (outside of Philadelphia area) at $3,000 per acre from a small landholder who will be opening up land for beginner farmers. With your help we could rent enough land to do a riparian buffer AND tracks in other areas on the land. All fruit and nuts these trees would produce would be available for all the farmers using the land to use for personal consumption and sell.
I am looking for donors for this special project.
Anything raised above and beyond rewilding Kula Kamala will be applied to this agroforestry project.
Join us as a sponsor or project friend.
1/4 acre: $750/year ($62.50/month)
1/2 acre: $1,500/year ($125/month)
1 acre: $3,000/year ($250/month)
Acknowledgement will be provided on our website and social media accounts.
Or join us as a donor through our GoFundMe fundraiser. All contributions no matter how big or small support the project.
