Postponed: Help Build a Greenhouse at Land of Shambhala

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our 11th July volunteer day has been postponed until restrictions are lifted.

Come and volunteer at our new retreat centre property – Land of Shambhala. We really need a few extra pairs of helping hands.

On July 25th 2020, we have lots of physical work to be accomplished. We will be building what’s called a poly house to put our seedlings in.

To Volunteer please rsvp to – juliefromrime@gmail.com

Things to Know
Follow your GPS. The road is not well marked. There is a sign that says 837.

For those allergic to dogs, there are two friendly dogs on the property that will mostly play with each other or swim in mud.

Lunch will be provided.

We have a port-o-potty but not fancy bathrooms.
There is a small work shed where we can all enjoy lunch together. It is an outdoor volunteer activity.

Practice Generosity Through Buddhist Offerings
To make merit for the benefit of all beings and create the causes and conditions for our project to be a success, we encourage you to bring incense, candles, gemstones, crystals, flowers, perfume, prayer flags or water to offer on the property. There is a shrine house as well as areas throughout Malaya Grove farm such as in the Medicine Buddha herb garden mandala and the food forest that we will become a buddha field filled with healing deities of wisdom traditions from around the world. Offer to the deities there to help create the causes for their statues to manifest.

Suggested Items to Bring
Dress in layers – It’s chilly up there.
Galoshes or shoes that are appropriate in the wet mud
Garden gloves
Shovels
Protective goggles
Fencing Pliers (if anyone has them we can use another pair while there)
Wire Cutter (really strong wire cutter again we can use another pair while you are there)
