Remembrance Garden Work Party

Remembrance Garden Work Party

Dates: Thursdays June 13 and June 20

Time 6:30 -7:45 pm

Place: 740 Park Ave, Arcata

We will be digging, weeding, planting, and renovating landscape to create a place to pause and remember and have a sense of calm in the garden. Tea and sweets will be provided at the end of our working. Come prepared to work in the soil. If you have a weeding tool, please bring it. If you are coming to sit zazen, please come in your gardening clothes. There is no charge for these events and everyone is welcome to attend.

These two garden work parties will be given by our guest, Marcia Lieberman, during her two-week visit. She is a long-term Buddhist practitioner who has been at San Francisco Zen Center since 1989. Marcia has been a resident at all three SFZC practice centers. During this time she received training in the various doan positions regarding service and practice. She is a devoted student of Tea Ceremony. As head gardener at City Center, she also has been Flower Chiden (gathering and arranging flowers for the altars) for many years. Together with the City Center Ino, a book was produced on the forms and preparations for the various services throughout the year. She served as Shuso in the spring 2017 Green Gulch Farm practice period. Please check the calendar for additional events with Marcia.
