Local Partners:

IMG_3142Ancient Oaks Farm and The Baltimore Homa Community

Baltimore Yoga Village, Mt. Washington Location has become a sign up and drop off point for the CSA (Community Sustainable Agriculture) produce organically grown at Ancient Oaks Farm. This farm uses homa farming techniques for organic food,  fertilized naturally by the very materials used in their homa fire meditations. The food is not only organic but also prayed over; and the proof is in the pudding. The beautiful harvest, which benefits our minds, bodies, and spirits is delivered fresh every thursday for the duration of the CSA season. Click here to sign up vegetables,
