My name is Ketut and I am the head gardener here at Jiwa Damai.

I am responsible for the huge organic permaculture garden with all the variety of tropical flowers, plants and trees.

Today I want to show you my nursery, where we grow the small plants out of seeds.  Once the plants are well nurtured and big enough, we put them out in the open field.

The nursery has a roof, to shelter the small plants from the heavy rains. Without a roof they would regularly be destroyed by the down-pouring rains.

We organize guided tours through the extensive organic permaculture garden – stop by and have a look for yourself.

See you soon at Jiwa Damai !
