Ananda Permaculture

Beyond Organic exists to uplift global consciousness and support Ananda Permaculture by providing vibrant health products to people drawn to a pure lifestyle.

Founders Devadasi and Alex Forrester met during a permaculture design course in Ashland, Oregon in 1999. They moved to Ananda Village, a 50-year-old spiritual community based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, in 2007 to create a permaculture food forest, support the health-conscious community and devote their lives to a higher cause, which, in turn, led to the creation of Beyond Organic.

Beyond Organic strives to go above and beyond the current standards for a healthy lifestyle. Certified organic standards have been lowered, genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) have become the norm and the relationship between consumer and farmer is essentially non-existent.

To live a truly health-conscious and pure lifestyle, we must know:

  1. Who grows the food we eat
  2. Who creates the products we use on our bodies and in our homes
  3. The ingredients used in these products
  4. The vitality of the soil in which the products are grown

Beyond Organic addresses all of these needs by providing an authentic farmer-to-consumer relationship, complete transparency surrounding our brand and products and making sure everything we produce is made with love. Our hope is that you will not only understand the difference these qualities make but feel it as well.
