We see the vital importance of fencing to protect our land and crops. Completing the perimeter fence means will be able to monitor the outside cows and take control and stewardship of our lands.
Finishing the west-side would be a major accomplishment, completing a big step in the long-term plan. The perimeter fencing for the entire south-end would now be complete. There is also fencing to be done at the north-end
The co-op will help SVHI build a perimeter fence and provide monitoring and maintenance. After the completion of the perimeter fencing we can identify areas throughout the valley that are suitable for grazing by our community cows.
We will finish the Saranagati South Boundary fence line from the NE Boundary Corner until half way to the SW corner of Lot 384. A 4 acre colonial fence is being built inside the share and can be used for grazing. Cows will fertilize the land for cultivation of fodder and food, while keeping the grasses low for fire safety
Fences for Cows and Agriculture
We believe that agriculture and cow care is the central focus for a Vaisnavas community project.
Cow protection needs focus and support of the community. It is based on principles of self-sufficiency and sustainability. Keeping/maintaining cows as well as growing our own food are fundamental to the survival and the very “raison d’etre” of Saranagati Village both for the present and future generations.
Cows provide us with everything we need, and at the same time they remind us of Krishna
