Our fancy new trash / recycling building is coming along. These photos were taken last Saturday, and the roof is still in process. Eventually there will be gates so that we won’t be staring at trash containers from the Sodo and the courtyard. This building is required as part of our Certificate of Occupancy, so it is a priority right now. Nevertheless, other work in other areas of the property proceeds, even as we are enjoying our new spaces for our regular programming.
This Saturday, April 16, we will have a special work party with Friends of Trees, beginning about 9am and going to noon. As always, zazen is in the Sodo from 11:30am to 12:25pm, with lunch served at the Sodo at 12:30.
In addition to regular Wednesday work parties (~9:30am-4pm), we can use help from all volunteers anytime that we’re on schedule and not on retreat. We have several wonderful volunteers who come regularly on Wednesdays and other times. Just let Ikuo [ikuohull at gmail.com] know beforehand so we can count you in for lunch.
