Priya Vincent

Buddha Garden

Priya founded the Buddha Garden in Auroville in 2000. Starting with a degraded one-acre plot, she passionately developed it into a thriving 12 acre organic farm that supplies vegetables and fruit to Auroville kitchens and hosts courses in organic farming for volunteers. She was led to the field of organic farming by a search for methods of sustainable living with a closer connection to the earth after working for fifteen years in market research companies. She completed a doctorate in sociology from the University of Surrey, UK and authored two books on pregnancy and birthing and a third called How My Garden Grew (Auroville Press, 2002).
