Fall Volunteer Work Week

Next VOLUNTEER WORK WEEK in community--April 27-30 and October 19-22, 2018

Each spring and fall we create a working community with all who come blending necessary seasonal work with daily meditation and mealtime conversations.  One of our favorite programs of the year!

Hello Friends,
When the snow melts, we will begin planning our spring volunteer work week in community.  This is our semi-annual work week, dedicated to opening and closing up seasonal things each spring and fall. We invite you to join us for a half day, a full day or the whole week. Be our guest at the Center, we will feed you, house you and set you to work in our two work sessions each day: 9-12 noon and 2-5 pm.

Below you will find a list of the tasks we did in the Fall 2015 work week--to give you an idea of what we do. And there are inevitably the impromptu jobs that come up and seize our imagination.  Email or call (244-1060) with questions, plans and details. We look forward to seeing you.   Kathryn and Joan
