The earth of this valley is now saturated with water from the heavens. Each rain drop brings a little bit of nourishment along with it – dissolved nitrogen, picked up via the electrical activity in the clouds. The resulting rich, vibrant greens of the leaves fill us with joy and well being.
It’s time to get down to the meander again, to our restoration site at the end of the farm. We will have a chance to look at the health of the trees and shrubs we planted in 2014-15 and see how the creek has changed.

What better way to restore oneself and the earth than enhancing the beauty of the land that we love? Last Sunday, Sept 2, Green Sangha’s East Bay members took an afternoon for inner and outer restoration at Green Gulch Farm, and David Nelson took these photos.
Eating some muffins, too, made by our hostess and Site Manager, Sukey Parmelee.
Embraced by some sunshine, dirt, and dharma fog, we left in our natural state.
Next date at Green Gulch: Sunday, November 11. Watershed Stewardship in the land of sun and water.

Join us once a season at Green Gulch Farm near Muir Beach for an afternoon of Watershed Stewardship and Inner Refreshment. After a delicious organic lunch, we gather for an overview and selectioni of jobs according to our heart’s desires. Tasks can include: removal of invasive weeds, trail improvement, planting of natives shrubs, wood gathering, and sheet mulching. After a couple of hours’ work, we reconvene for tea and scrumptious muffins.
We then hold a short Green Sangha meeting, whose content 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 the larger community in the Zendo. Bring comfortable layers for changeable weather, sturdy shoes, a hat, and gloves if you have them.
