Topic: Sustainable living in the Himalayas, including green building, organic gardening, and permaculture landscaping

raising the roofDescription: Informal programme at the Dharmalaya Institute open to both residential and non-residential participants. We will be doing fun, physical work, including green building, organic gardening, tree planting, and more. There will be plenty of opportunities for learning, application, questions, and relaxation (we can also offer an optional meditation programme for those who are interested, at least through 7 May, and possibly later). Feel free to come and go anytime between 3 April and 7 May 2013 (and you can stay even longer if you don’t mind getting wet and muddy once the monsoon rains begin in mid-late June).

Please note that after 7 May our native-English speaking facilitators will be gone, so there will be less English-language guidance available, but some of our local crew speak enough English to keep the work (and the fun) rolling along for those who wish to stay.

For more information see our volunteer page, read the FAQ, and complete the volunteer application if you’re interesting in joining us.
