It has been some time without an update on LME garden as we have been busy with our annual winter mindfulness program. So, the garden has been left to thrive on its own, with some monitoring help from our residence farmer. However, today we are happy to offer a bundle of fresh green spinach to lamas and lopons (teachers) of Chokyi Gyatso Institute (CGI) for their consumption. This is our first winter production of the year. It is indeed a good harvest with 13 bunches, all sold to CGI at minimal cost.
Besides, a group of our students and teachers planted 80 Kilograms of potato seeds in the garden, a month ago. Now, these seeds have grown into sprouts, green leaves, and branches. We are excited about the progress.
