Help Build Our New Monks’ Residence + Construction Updates!

Our devoted team of monks and lay friends have been wholeheartedly working to build our new monks’ residence in Solidity Hamlet.

We are looking for skilled (and some unskilled) volunteers to support us in the build as well as equipment to complete the project. 

We are especially in need of advising/consulting support from a professional framer.

We are also seeking equipment and tools to borrow or keep for the project:

Construction Update

Earlier in April, about 30 young people from our Wake-Up retreat showed up to support in laying down dirt, helping to create solid ground for the new residence. It is truly amazing what a big group of people can do together when practicing mindfulness while working.  We are so grateful for our volunteers and for the hard and loving work they have demonstrated.
