Developments from our Australian partner, Atisha Buddhist Centre

Mark and Jill, our dedicated Australian coordinators, have been very busy!

Besides sharing an educational article about their recent trip to Vietnam, they are also very engaged with developments happening at Atisha Buddhist Centre.

Last weekend, Atisha Buddhist Centre had a tree-planting day. More news on this will follow soon!

Mark tells us that they are applying for funding to create a “honey and native bee pollinator garden” around the Kadampa Stupa.

Additionally, a “Spring planting day” is being organized, and Mark has shared some photos with us of the areas where the future planting will take place:

And lastly, Mark tells us that they have been working on the gabion stone walls around the Kadampa Stupa. This is the same area where they plan on planting bee-friendly trees in the near future.

Mark says that if we look closely at the photo above, we will spot his trailer-tent where he is sleeping during his on-site days at the Kadampa Stupa. Last week, it was minus 2 degrees Celsius (28 Fahrenheit) at night. Brrr!

Thank you for the update, Mark and Jill, and thank you Atisha Buddhist Centre for all the projects you are doing to plant trees and benefit nature. We appreciate your work, and we look forward to seeing how these projects develop!
