Weekend Gardening Workshop October 7-8, 2017

WEEKEND GARDENING WORKSHOP

October 7-8, 2017  9:00 am – 5:00 pm

As we meditate and learn the Dharma, so should we take opportunities to put our teachings into practice.  Join our landscapers, Bret and Ryan, on Saturday and Sunday, October 7 and 8, for a hands-on gardening workshop.

We will learn how our work practice can be of benefit to others without directly benefiting ourselves.  No gardening experience is required–all abilities and interests are welcome–as we practice a different kind of sitting, standing and walking meditation.

We will learn about landscaping with sustainable gardening practices, plant identification, and beneficial insects, as well as hardscaping, mulching, composting, cold frames, raised beds, and pond and bee hive maintenance, as we perform our fall clean-up.
