Organic Garden

HATCC’s Facilities team, along with dedicated volunteers, converted unused land into an organic vegetable garden. The produce from the garden will be used by Temple’s Bhojanashala, and the remaining produce will be used to generate funds for the temple. This organic garden uses cow dung as manure for growing vegetables.
