The Rishi Valley landscaping work which began a few weeks back continues. It was a few weeks back that Keoke cleared some scrub brush. Now island families are helping to plant groundcovers. They have chosen edible plants for this which will provide food for the monks and be a beautiful green carpet, too. Spinach and sweet potato vines have been sprigged and are growing well with occasional rains.
Bodhinatha watches as the work proceeds.
It was his vision to open up Rishi Valley, which as you can see is close to Iraivan Temple (seen in the upper right of this photo). The new pond is lovely green-blue today and will sport water plants in the future.
