Shunya is zero. It represents the space between something and nothing. The new paradigms for sustainability require a synthesis of the scientific and the spiritual worldviews which until now have been talked of as contradictory. It is on this edge of everything we know and have known, that ideas and visions for the new world will emerge.
Shunya is the unending journey of discovery of the nuances of the outside and the inside.
We are growing Shunya farm into a repository of plants and ideas useful in this context. Through the farm, we wish to preserve and augment the biodiversity in the area and consolidate and create a knowledge base for the old and new residents to explore new ways of thinking, livelihoods and lifestyle options.
The practices on the farm are influenced by Fukuoka’s natural way of farming and Permaculture design. Along the way, many indigenous communities and traditional farmers have helped us understand why we do what we do and how to do it. We believe that a holistic culture considers the dimensions of spirituality, social relationships, and ecology. The ethics of care for self, people, and our environment are the foundation of our work.
