Dharma Rain News

The photo shows the difference between the north duplex (to the left), which has new siding around the bottom half, and the south duplex, which doesn’t yet, but is being prepped to receive it. This week’s Wednesday work party was sparse, likely because of heat and smoke and generally unhealthy conditions to be outside. Still, work continues on utilities and cleanup. The weather is now improving, both in temperature and air quality.

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.
