Krishna Eco Farm

Krishna Eco Farm is based in a peaceful countryside next to the small historical town of Lesmahagow, originally started by monks. It is a relatively new project of the Hare Krishna spiritual community 'Karuna Bhavan' ('Sanctuary of Peace') that includes families, monastics and volunteers. It is being developed as a holistic spiritual centre, to help re-establish the sacredness of life. Our aim is to promote peace of mind and offer a positive alternative to the dominant consumerist and materialistic world view. We invite you to experience an alternative lifestyle that benefits body, mind and soul and is based on the motto 'simple living, high thinking'. It is a unique chance to get out of the rat race, see things from a new perspective and ask yourself questions you might never have asked before. We are making 1st steps, however in a long-term we are aiming for self-sufficiency. Being a new project, the eco-farm provides good opportunities for development and initiative. We invite volunteers to share their skills to develop this project. Eco Farm includes a walled garden, green houses, a meditation garden, energy saving technologies and an ashram for spiritual practices. If you prefer fruits over alcohol, fresh air over cigarettes, our famous vegetarian food over meat and would like to experience a detox retreat then the Krishna Eco Farm is for you!

We very highly value hospitality and treat all our guests and volunteers with care as we belong to Bhakti Yoga tradition that emphasises treating everyone nicely.

I felt at home straight away and everyone is so lovely and welcoming. The accommodation and food was really nice I loved the food. The work is great especially if you love gardening. It was an amazing experience to develop spiritually and get involved with their culture and practices i learnt so much. It’s such a positive environment with amazing people in the perfect location. I would definitely recommend if you want to reconnect with nature.

Eu fui embora já querendo voltar. O lugar é maravilhoso, os devotos são pessoas incríveis, a comida e a acomodação muito boas. Me senti parte de uma grande família com alpacas e uma grande jardim pra cuidar. :) Haribol!!!!

The farm is at the end of a charming small town; the people are friendly.

Incredibly, I could eat fresh food from the farm I am working. I love it very much.

Working alone in a greenhouse makes me peaceful and merciful. Watching the sunrise and sunset on the farm is an experience of mother nature. I feel it is a reconnection.

Thanks to everyone on the farm, who was so friendly and helpful.

Life is a cycle.

Life is wonderful.

My experience at Krishna Eco Farm was incredible because I was able to discover new ways of thinking and, above all, spirituality.
I was able to connect with people in the community in such a way that I felt at home.
I loved the food and I learned that everything is a cycle, serving and giving love.
I strengthened my inner peace and enjoyed learning more about gardening and the cycle of life.
Thank you very much for everything, it was a pleasure living with the community and sharing ecological projects.
See you soon 💞!!

Krishna Eco Farm is a place of healing, joyful service and community. These wonderful people are so kind and genuine. Conversations are insightful and the energy is very positive. The food is delicious and always prepared with love. I was able to learn so much about Krishna Consciousness and Indian culture. I practiced my Spanish with fellow volunteers and created authentic friendships I will cherish well into the future. I experienced vivid dreams and thoroughly enjoyed my meditative time in the gardens and greenhouses. I would write more but I’m out of room! 💚🙏🏻 🕉🧘🏽‍♀️🌱
