I'm passing on the following event as it includes a chance to tour and
possibly contribute toward a number of sustainability-based projects,
including Atlantic Canada's first hempcrete (or hemp-lime masonry) building
and a large root cellar (funded in part by the EAC).
I've been to this event many times and I highly recommend it. It's a chance
to get outside for a few days, meet great people, and to contribute to an
excellent organization that has been increasingly dedicated to promoting
sustainability in the region. I always feel like it's a vacation!
The following notice ends with more information about the retreat centre,

See you next weekend,
Join us for a few days of work, meditation, and celebration, as we prepare

This is a great opportunity to enjoy nature, meet new friends, and
contribute to the excellent work that Dorje Denma Ling and its staff offers
to others all year around.

gatherings, it has grown into a year-round, multi-facility hub for the
Shambhala teachings, Buddhist programs, sustainability, applied

Recently Dorje Denma Ling moved forward on several projects that place us
at the vanguard of sustainability and long-term vision in Shambhala and the
region, including the construction of Atlantic Canada's first hempcrete (or

offer to the world, and we're putting it into practice with resilient,
