Sustainable Kashi is the next generation of youth from Kashi Ashram, an intentional interfaith community on 80 acres in Sebastian, Florida. Working to build upon their parent’s 30 years of life’s work, Sustainable Kashi believes the principles of permaculture will strengthen their family and friends’ unique culture, keeping it thriving for generations to come.
Kashi was founded in 1976 by spiritual teacher, Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati. Growing up in poverty in a Jewish family in Brooklyn, NY, Ma’s first teachers were the homeless people in Coney Island. It was there that she was taught “There are no throw away people.” She learned to live life fully and gained respect for all humanity.
Ma has always quoted her teacher, Neem Karoli Baba as saying, “Serve God’s children. Share, feed everyone, and never, ever have a dry heart.” She has put this to action by infusing all Kashi’s communities, teachings, and activities with this premise of helping others.
