About Master Gardener Jan Enthoven
Jan Enthoven, master gardener, descends from a long line of Dutch fruit and vegetable growers. Interested in organic farming since childhood, Mr. Enthoven visited renowned Buddhist farmer-philosopher, Masanobu Fukuoka during his travels through Asia in 1982. Inspired by Mr. Fukuoka’s approach, Jan embraced ecological farming methods, and his farm became organically certified in 1983.
Drawn to the Shambhala teachings, Jan visited Karmê Chöling in 1988. Charmed by the people and landscape of Vermont, in 1990 he agreed to be Karmê Chöling’s master gardener. Since that time, Jan’s organic garden has drawn thousands of visitors, and Jan has mentored many garden enthusiasts. He teaches garden internships for new and experienced gardeners and has written articles for newspapers and magazines.
