This workshop ‘Basic of organic edible gardening’ was the first one in a series of permaculture teachings we offer in conjunction with unfolding the HeartSelf-Intelligence at Jiwa Damai.

It was a two day workshop introducing permaculture gardening for small gardens. Stephanie who is teaching the class presented a wonderful mixture of lecture, movie and practical hands on in the garden. The participants seem to have enjoyed this very much.

At Jiwa Damai we are producing many different kinds of dried fruit and vegetables. All produce is from our organic farm, harvested and freshly processed in our raw food drying oven.

Dried Bananas

In our organic garden we grow about 8 different varieties of bananas. Each taste is unique and they are best eaten when not too ripe and the skin is still greenish-yellow. They are gently and slowly air dried in our dehydrator to keep their extraordinary flavor.

Dried Papaya

Harvested from trees spotting our garden, our papayas are plump and juicy. When dried, the flavor pops and they make a delicious snack for any time of day or a vitamin-packed addition to any meal.

Dried Jackfruit

The jackfruit grows high up in the trees and can reach a weight of 10 -12 kg. Once the giant fruit is harvested, opened and its inner fruit compartments separated, the fresh fruit is available to be plucked out, its black stone removed, immediately sliced and gently air dried, thus keeping its fresh and aromatic flavor.
