We are getting some much needed landscaping done at the Sangha House and we are opening the opportunity for Sangha Members to offer Dana for this project. We received bids from a few landscaping companies and all together the costs will be in the $5,000 range. This project includes:
- placing a few shrubs/plants in the parkway along D street
- providing irrigation under the sidewalk to the trees/bushes
- placing pavers in the rest of the space to both prevent weeds and to provide a stable surface for crossing that area
- and purchasing a Buddha Statue for under the tree
If you feel moved to Donate to this project, please CLICK HERE and in the “Add Special Instructions to the Seller” box, please indicate that it is for the landscape. THANK YOU!
