The Auro Community Garden is six acres of Certified Naturally Grown treasures located in Brooksville, Florida.

The garden has been cultivating nutrient rich soil for over a decade to bring the nutritious, high quality, naturally grown food to our community.

We maintain our mission as that of complete sharing with all those who seek truly healthful food with full sustainability.

The result of hard work by the garden staff and members is nothing short of spectacular. We do not use harmful chemicals, and there is no place for toxic materials to be injected or sprayed upon the precious crops.

The Garden is supported by The Auroveda Foundation, which has made great efforts to ensure that the Garden is well managed and maintained. The garden team consists of garden managers, community memberships, and volunteers.

To make the garden a success, our team is dedicated to working together in unison by sharing talents, knowledge, and ideas.
