Arbor Day at Green Gulch Farm

Sunday, November 27, 2016, 1 – 4:30pm

Please join us to inaugurate a new autumnal planting date for our longtime Arbor Day tradition! In the spirit of giving thanks to the earth, we will plant with the early rains to establish deep roots over the winter.

ggf_arborday-2016-11-27_450You are warmly invited to spend the afternoon working in the lower fields of the valley:

  • planting a new windbreak
  • weeding
  • removing exotic invasive plants
  • making seed balls to spread across the land and
  • perhaps doing a small bonfire to make biochar (a stable and beneficial form of carbon)

Together we’ll continue caretaking this diverse and precious watershed in the company of our myriad sangha friends, working in a contemplative atmosphere among the wild elements.

We will hold this event regardless of weather, excepting torrential rains. Check the weather and dress accordingly. Bring work clothes, gloves, water bottles, whatever you need to be comfortable. Our closing gathering will have hot tea, treats and warm company to dedicate the merit of our time together. You’re invited to stay for evening zazen at 5:15 to complete the day.
