"I had the privilege of doing a retreat with Prasad Rangnekar.
I was in need of some quieter, focused, internal space at the time and Prasad provided a balanced programme that enabled me to connect with this.
I was impressed with his commitment and vision. It shines through and he is a pleasure to be around.
He speaks with Direct Knowledge and experience of the Spiritual Way - with absolute infectious confidence".

Cookery Workshops & Garden Tours

  The spacious kitchen is well-equipped for concocting delicacies in the Middle Eastern tradition, as well as authentic Mediterranean cuisine all of which can be enjoyed over a glass of local wine, sitting al fresco on the terrace as the sun sets and the moon rises.
 
The grounds surrounding La Huerta Ganga provide the ideal setting to improve your knowledge of gardening. In season the abundance of wild flowers is breathtaking.
 
Fruit and nut trees: Orange, lemon, mandarin, almond, walnut, plum, fig and olive offer the burgeoning gardener a delicious classroom in which to learn about planting seasons, lunar cycles and pruning techniques. Lessons are also given in the preparation of vegetarian dishes, jams, preserves, chutneys and in bread-making.
 
The mountainous terrain, hardy soil and limited water supply demand innovative and ingenious gardening styles that will inspire you to experiment in your own garden.
 
The garden has its own water supply from an underground spring which provides a year-round smorgasbord of vegetables for the table. These include spinaches and chard, salad plants, root and tuber vegetables, spices and herbs.
 
The balance is supplied by local organic growers. Learn about the medicinal properties of various herbs and spices and discover delicious vegetarian recipes for your improved health and wellbeing.
