Shumei Hall

Pasadena, CA 91107 United States


Our mission is to observe and apply the ways of nature or “Natural Agriculture” in our gardening and farming practices for the purpose of creating harmony with the environment as well as obtaining the most healthy grown vegetable yields possible. We support individuals and organizations to review and revolutionize their current practices, and provide a meeting ground for this exploration. We also encourage personal reflection and discussion on how this harmonizing with nature deepens and impacts our own lives personally.
