Monks and nuns in our lineage of Buddhism traditionally practice in the seclusion of forested areas and so, as part of our transition to a monastery and retreat centre, Sunyata will be requiring more woodland to house resident monastics. To this end we will be planting about 350 trees adjacent to the current forest. These will be a mixture of native, mostly broadleaf, species, such as birch, oak, scot’s pine, hazel and rowan.
On February 18th we will be having a meitheal to plant the trees. Everyone is welcome to come and participate -details can be found here.
