Ronny Tome was born in Hochsauerland in Nordrhein Westfalen and arrived in Bali in June 1995.The Project GARDEN OF LIFE was developed with his business partner Mario Hintermayer. They were looking into creating a meaningful project to be build on their land in Tabanan to help develop the area in a sustainable way by understanding the problems that Bali is facing related to tourism and the lack of adequate infrastructure to deal with ever rising visitor numbers.The result was a non-profit oriented project, to be supported by the global community and aimed at sending out a positive message to the world, that the people of Bali regardless of faith, origin or background can come together and tackle the challenges united. At the same time, to raise funds for the underpriviliged and people in need, by creating a tourist destination owned by the Foundation, to ensure a constant cash flow through revenues, supporting partner charities in Bali and therefore allowing those charities to focus on expanding their help rather than spending their time looking forconstant donations and funding. The idea of the Garden of Life was born.
