The tree-planting day scheduled for May 7 has been postponed due to weather. Save the new date – May 28!

New Zealand was been suffering from unusually warm weather and a lack of rain. These conditions are not conducive to sapling survival.

The new planting date is May 28.

Mark your calendar.  Join the team at  Chandrakirti Meditation Centre in New Zealand on May 28 to plant 500 native tree species at the Wish-Fulfilling Land. Read more about the project here!
