The Irish word ‘Meitheal’ means ‘a collective effort for the greater good of the community’. It describes the old Irish tradition of people coming together to help each other with the work that needed to be done.
On this day we gather together to work outdoors on various tasks such as gardening, working in the forest and tree planting.
As Sunyata is a voluntary organisation we rely on the support and generosity of people willing to give up some of their time.
The Meitheal day is focused on the beautiful natural surroundings of Sunyata and generally involves working together to take care of the gardens and forest.
This meitheal will involve planting about 350 trees to extend Sunyata’s current forest. This area will in future contain several kutis, or cabins, where monks will live.
