WHO WE ARE
Sarvodaya Institute, based in Los Angeles, was founded in 2010 by the farming Kumar Family to nourish the common well-being of people and planet.
Since then, Farmers Rishi, Manju, and Arthi have been working to restore people's faith in soil & gardens, as well as humanity's role in Earth-care.
Learn and explore with us as we recognize ourselves as soil, and our concrete cities as Nature. Come meet us at our popular nursery, watch a few of our educational & how-to videos, or take a tour of one of our three ecological demonstration gardens.
Support our work by becoming a Monthly Member.

Join us for our monthly Farm Workout!
**** FARM WORKOUTS ARE POSTPONED FOR CORONAVIRUS QUARANTINE****
Roll up your sleeves and put on your garden gloves because the soil is waiting! Once a month, Sarvodaya Institute hosts a Farm Workout Day to teach & engage the community in gardening and regenerative agricultural practices. During a Farm Workout, students will be mulching, weeding, pruning and learning about how regenerative agriculture has a direct effect on our gut health as well as the health of the planet. Help keep the plants and crops healthy while getting a natur-al workout!
