✔️ About us

With a view encompassing Baekdudaegan Mountain Range, this is a community created for Buddhism more than 30 years ago. We cultivate wild vegetables and herbs with self-sufficiency to practice Mind and Farming harmony(禪農一致). It has abundant native wild vegetables, wild herbs, and wildflowers, so anyone can breathe clean nature and enjoy true healing.

The host is a bhikkhuni who performs spritual practice(Sādhanā) with doing farm work, and has been working hard to cultivate a farm in the Chulga Community for more than 20 years.

We are taking care of nature surrounding by the farm and performing the self spiritual practice at the same time with the values and benefits of nature. In addition, vegetables and herbs produced by labor are divided free of charge with visitors. We promote the other farms nearby rather than to gain the profits of our own community and it leads to the profits of local farmers, contributing to the regional economic development.

✔️ Farming Experience 1999

✔️ Farm Type Community that grows a self-sufficient garden

✔️ Main Crop Wild greens, Medicinal herbs, wild flowers

✔️ Farming Method

We do not use any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc.

Instead, we use compost using EM fermentation as the main fertilizer to grow wild vegetables and herbs.

✔️ Organic Lifestyle

The eco-friendly life we think of is not just about ourselves, but about cherishing the value of all life as a priority value.

In addition, it is important to coexist with all the surrounding nature, so we do not collect a lot of herbs in nature, but harvest an appropriate amount, and practice a life of returning the rest to nature again.
