Yesterday Director of Development, Mai Lee stopped for a chat with KNCO Newstalk 830 about Ananda’s 50th Anniversary, Ananda Worldwide, Ananda Village, The Expanding Light Retreat, Ananda Meditation Retreat, Ananda School of Yoga & Meditation & Ananda Village Living Wisdom School. She did a great job summarizing the breadth of this worldwide movement.
More importantly, she covered this year’s Springtime at Ananda tulip season on the first day of Spring.

First real vlog from the garden with Mai Lee, our marketing gal. We are so ready for Spring. Are you? Everyone has been asking if we will have tulips on April 1. Its a little too early — maybe? It is April Fools and Mother Nature plays jokes on us all the time. Watch the video and find out.

Mother Nature helped with the Shining Rays this Saturday and we got the Green Team , 28 wonderful people planting flower bulbs , weeding areas around and making everything pretty for the beginning of Springtime At Ananda , which is around the corner 🌈
As we can see now , and most likely ~ the first week of April will enchant with some of the tulips in bloom , but ~ the second week will share the whole tulip extravaganza ~
We had lots of fun this Saturday with laughter , delicious breakfast and great friendships .Thank you everyone for your sweet presence 🌹
Looking forward for next time

It has been very cold here in Nevada City and every where else in California. Today we have a break in the cold weather – finally no rain, sleet, and clouds. Is Mother nature giving us hints of spring through these beautiful daffodils? We hope so!
If you don’t know, we have an amazing VIP and Deluxe Events packages this year. Its only for one weekend April 13 & April 14. They have been selling like hot cakes. Get your ticket before we run out.

Inside look at garden design with our lead gardener Nancy Mair.
December 20, 2019
Creating a beautiful tulip garden is not a simple task. Scores of volunteers and staff, like Ric have already planted 6,000 bulbs and 2,000 bedding plants such as pansies and forget me not. Planting starts with pulling out existing summer garden plants and flowers.
Then we prep the soil, plant bulbs, go back over the planted bulbs and plant bedding plants in the fall and winter. In the spring just before the gardens open volunteers will plant additional pansies and forget me not flowers. Stay tuned for a detailed report on garden design process with lead garden designer Nancy and Keri Mair.
