Planting Zen in Siskiyou Square
Fujaku holds a large bundle of basil from the gardens to be made into pesto. We are also harvesting the results of lots of hard work and money from our many donors and benefactors in having a beautiful functional building. For the first time in a few years, we have a hearth, a home base that can house all of our offerings. New people are coming in and long-time members are returning. If you haven’t yet, check out the classes and special programs – the Talent Show, Term Student Program, Heart of Work Retreat, and other workshops coming up in October and November.
We continue to work on finishing details inside and outside the Sodo, as well as on landscaping and gardening tasks. Regular Wednesday work parties are a great way to spend time with sangha doing useful things on the property. There are plenty of tasks for everyone who shows up between 9:30am-3pm. We also have a mid-day sit from 11:30am to 12:30pm. If you are around for lunch time (12:30pm), you get lunch for free.
