  • We are in the last stages of completing grading work at the site. We are working with the Santa Clara County officials on amendments that will help us during development of the site. Once the grading work is completed, we will start hydro-seeding of the area.
  • Our consultants are working on the first building to be constructed and are in the final stages towards having a pre-screening with the Santa Clara county.
  • While we complete the required grading work, we are working towards appointing specialist consultants to fine tune our applications materials.
  • We have expanded the flower garden by another 800 SFT. In this new area, we have planted the seasonal flowers like Marigold and Daisies which are expected to start flowering in 3 months from now. With this, we have more or less filled up the fenced plot of 2500 SFT. We plan to create another plot and prepare it for seasonal vegetable cultivation from next week. The approaching Spring and Summer are the best seasons for enhancing the nursery and we will need a lot of volunteers to work on the project. We also have our own Bounce Houses procured from China to entertain the kids on special occasions. We could use them to attract volunteers for the works we plan to do on Vaikuntha Hill as an added attraction to keep the kids engaged while the parents are volunteering.
