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! 💚🙏🏻 🕉🧘🏽‍♀️🌱

The place was great! I got to learn a lot about Krishna Consciousness, Indian culture, sanskrit and I was able to form part of different interesting activities such as yoga, dancing and singing on the streets of Glasgow, spiritual retreats, Sunday feasts and lots of different funny things. I'd like to go back whenever I can.
