Following the Saturday morning sitting we will spend a few hours sprucing up the interior and grounds of the Temple, followed by a pizza lunch.
This is an excellent way to get to know members of the Sangha and practice together outside the zendo. Wear closed-toed work shoes or boots. If you have work gloves and/or hand/garden tools, feel free to bring them as our supply is limited. Families are welcome! As always, your help is greatly appreciated.
