Dharma Rain News

We’re looking for a small rowboat or canoe to put in the Dharma Rain playground. It should be in fairly good condition, not rotting or splintery, but it definitely doesn’t have to be sea-worthy!

Please contact Shin’yu [shinyu at dharma-rain.org] if you have such a boat to donate. We can arrange pick-up.


This week work has been proceeding on the duplexes in several ways. The north building has had most of its new siding put up. This will eventually be painted to match the outside of the Sodo. Kakumyo and Joel work on hammering it into place.

Trenches in front and back, holding pipes for electrical, water, and sewer, will get filled in soon. Next week excavators return to the land to move a substantial part of the surcharge into various places, including around the duplexes to raise the level of the soil.

Wednesday Work Parties

We have regular Wednesday work parties from around 9am to 3:30pm. We also have work parties on Thursdays and Fridays during the summer. There is plenty of work for people to do, inside and outside, light and heavy. Come for as much or little of the time as you wish. We have tools and gloves, but if you have your own, feel free to bring them. If you are around at 12:30pm, we feed you lunch.
