TROPICAL FRUIT TREE,
SEED & BAMBOO NURSERY
HURRICANE UPDATE 10/23/2017:
Hurricane Maria turned out to be the most damaging natural disaster in Puerto RIco's recorded history. Vast parts of the local infrastructure are destroyed. Govardhan Gardens as it used to be does not exist anymore: while house and cottages received practically no damage; almost all of the farm's vegetation is either damaged or completely destroyed. The entire nursery area was flattened. There is so much devastation at the moment, that it will take at least 1.5 - 2 years just to clean up the farm, and much longer to re-plant it. The time, energy and resources required to do that are completely out of my reach.
We will be without electricity, phone and drinking water for months. Gasoline and food were rationed for the first few weeks but they are slowly come back. Due to these circumstances, I will only be able to deal with few e-mails, and I won't be able to process any nursery orders for some time.
If you want to support the project in any way, you can send donations via Paypal to: firstname.lastname@example.org (The U.S. postal service is not working well at the moment). Please make sure to declare any payment as "Hurricane Relief Donation! Thank you!
For anyone who wants to donate goods, the most important item at the moment are chains for the chainsaw (Stihl MS 290, FarmBoss, 20" blade). Chains are currently sold out in PR but we will have to go through approx. 90 chains between now and the end of 2018. Make sure to keep the receipt of any package sent - mail to PR takes 2-8 weeks now.
