Connect, nourish, sustain

Taruna is above all a place of connection – to others, to what matters, and between the threads of the spiritual, social and practical.  Taruna is also a place to be nourished – to learn about what nourishes and how we can nourish others. As well it is a place that sustains – sustains people to serve the world around them, and to work in ways that sustain the earth.
