In an attempt to reflect that a very small twelve foot by fifteen foot piece of earth can produce enough food for a few families, we grew a trellis garden behind Melanie Burch’s garage studio on St. James Road in Randallstown, Maryland, starting on May 15th, 2011. Stephanie Gasden and Freddie Lawrence expended great energy to erect the trellis.
We planted many edibles, including herbs, vegetables, strawberries, cantaloupes, watermelons, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, leafy green veggies, corn and so forth. We were told that our garden would not flourish because the plants were too close together, but we had had experience with intercrop growing since 1973 and knew otherwise. With the use of the special energies of the scientific Agnihotra fires and the resulting nutrient-packed Agnihotra ash, performed not only at Melanie’s but in the greater nearby Resonance Point community as well, it was a no-brainer that crop production would be exceptional.

If you look closely, you will find cucumbers, tomatoes, squash and watermelons hanging from the roof of the trellis. We call this our “PURE ORGANIC HOMA THERAPY ORNAMENTAL VEGETABLE XMAS TREE JUNGLE GARDEN.”
