Inner and Outer Restoration at Green Gulch

Cheerful weederJoin us once a season at Green Gulch Farm for an afternoon of Watershed Stewardship and inner refreshment. Tasks can include: removal of invasive weeds, trail improvement, planting of native shrubs, wood gathering, and sheet mulching. After a couple of hours’ work, we reconvene for tea and scrumptious muffins.

We then hold a short meeting, which varies according to the season and our collective inclination – from sharing news and plans, to a letter-writing action, to a walk down to the beach.

We end with deep silence, meditating with community members in the Zendo. Bring comfortable layers for changeable weather, sturdy shoes, a hat, and gloves if you have them.

My daily affairs are quite ordinary;
but I’m in total harmony with them.
I don’t hold on to anything, don’t reject anything;
nowhere an obstacle or conflict.
Who cares about wealth and honor?
Even the poorest thing shines.
My miraculous power and spiritual activity:
drawing water and carrying wood
