Protect and care for cows

Cow Protection

Ahimsa is the Sanskrit word for “non-violence”. We wish to raise awareness of the importance of cruelty-free milk and to show the mutually beneficial relationship that can be established between cows and human beings. In ancient India, cows and bulls were protected and lovingly cared for throughout their lives.

Eco housing

We want to construct eco housing and guest accomodation that has a minimal waste generation and resource consumption. The designs are centred around zero carbon buildings, using sustainable building techniques and locally sourced materials that connect us to nature. This will not only be cost effective but it is an immediate response to adapting to climate change.

We are hoping to raise €20000 by the end of the year 2020.

Care for Cows : Care for the planet

Our Mission

Govinda’s Eco Community is a unique project dedicated to the teachings of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who desired that people become more self-sufficient, live simply off the land, and raise protected cows.

People are becoming increasingly frustrated with materialistic life and many are suffering from the pressures that mass consumerism inflicts on their minds and bodies.

Together we can combine our knowledge, experience and talents in order to achieve a common goal, which is;

To introduce a sustainable lifestyle with the principles of cow protection, permaculture and eco housing and a community centre as the heart of the project, in accordance with Srila Prabhupada’s formula “Simple living and high thinking.”
