“Saying our prayers with our hands in the earth” – 5th Annual Gratitude Gathering

Come Saturday, July 28, 1:00 to 4:30 pm, to the home of  Mary & Trathen Heckman, Green Sangha Advisory Council member.  The program begins with a couple of hours of service in the Heckmans’ permaculture paradise, a model home and garden.   We will then gather for meditation, a garden talk by Trathen, volunteer recognition, and potluck refreshments.

This will be a special opportunity to wish Stuart Moody all success as he moves to Tucson in August.  Stuart will continue his Green Sangha work there, teaching sustainability from within and developing training programs to share with us and other parts of the nation.

Enjoy an afternoon of fresh air, fellowship, and fun.  Bring a broad-brimmed hat and other sun protection, your own reusable water bottle and/or mug, your favorite garden tools, and a little something to share for the potluck.
