Calling All Green Thumbs

Spring is here and we are ready to get started on Kadampa Center's gardens!

We'll be having a meeting Sunday, March 24 at 12:30 p.m. to talk about the opportunities in the gardens this year. There's an overall plan in place for how each bed will be used; we'll talk about the tasks we'd like to do and set a date for spring planting in April.

If you are interested but can't come to the meeting, send Donna an email at and y'all can talk.

Stupa Construction

If you've got 'em to share, your Center needs your brawn and your tools!

In the next two weeks, we will be doing several outdoor projects at Kadampa Center in the front and back yard. Our biggest need for volunteers is all day on Saturday, February 23rd, and from 2 to 5 pm on Sunday, February 24th, for placing bricks in the path around the stupa. We could also use volunteers to help with other physical work (details below) for a half-day or more most days from Tuesday, February 19th, through Monday, February 25th. On these days, we are planning to work from 10am to 5pm. 

We will be renting


For the last few years a dedicated group of volunteers has taken responsibility for mowing and other basic groundskeeping chores at Kadampa Center. The volunteers work in teams of two. Last year we had enough volunteers so that each team only had to mow once every five weeks or so. We're hoping to have a similar schedule this year.

You won't need to bring your own lawnmower. Kadampa Center has two. We just need people to push 'em around.

We also have a couple of one-time chores that need to be done, such as weeding flower beds or trimming hedges.

Be a Greeter!

Greeter Opportunity:  “Be the Face of Our Center Community”

Offering a warm, hospitable greeting to all people who enter our Center not only helps the visitor feel welcome but also plants many virtuous seeds in the Greeter’s mind. For some first time visitors, entering a dharma center may bring a variety of feelings and concerns. To see a friendly face at the front door can make all the difference in the world.

The role of Greeter can seem straightforward on the surface but can be a profound practice of appreciating and rejoicing in the incredible merit of each person who comes to our Center
