  • August Selfless Service

    Updated August 1, 2014 EventSetup1-600x400.jpg A volunteer prepares for Saturday satsangs
    Join us for selfless service on Saturdays  as we end Amma’s tour, take advantage of the summer weather, and look forward to an event-filled fall.
     
    Amma’s tour supplies have come home! Together, we can help bring Amma’s tour to a graceful end by unpacking, cleaning, and storing this big truckload of supplies. Handling all these items gives you a behind-the-scenes peek at how Amma’s tour is put together, and can be a beautiful way to reflect on the way Amma has blessed so many people with her presence across the continent during the last two months.
     
    This month, you can serve with the kitchen team to clean and organize the many bins of supplies that have fed Amma’s guests this summer, all across the continent. The team also plans to clean and re-organize the Center’s dishwashing and serving areas. To keep you cooler, these sevas start earlier, at 9:00 am, and end at 1:00 pm.
     
    As the regular Saturday satsangs resume (on August 9th), we will give Amrita Hall an extra-thorough cleaning, and re-stock the Amma Shop for Saturday programs. Your service here will help prepare M.A. Center for the many spiritual events of the fall, including Ganesh Chaturthi , the Labor Day retreat , and Amma’s birthday celebration.
     
    In August, the sunny weather creates the perfect conditions for painting, or for serving in the orchards. We plan to paint or re-paint a number of gateways at the Center this month. If you like painting, or just want to make the Center look even nicer, come out and roll up your sleeves for a painting project. You can also soak up some sun building fences or digging sites for new trees in the GreenFriends orchards.
     

  • Summer in the Orchards

    July 4, 2014 Orchard2_600x400.jpg A few of this year's apples, on trees near Amrita Hall
    Soak up some sunshine this summer by spending a day in the GreenFriends orchards. There is an orchard seva for anyone who would like to serve.
     
    LOTUS ORCHARD
    In the coming weeks, we will complete the fence for the new Lotus Orchard, and you can help. This planned orchard will eventually be home to about 300-400 fruit trees, planted at Amma’s request.
     
    We have Amma’s blessing to plant 200 fruit trees in the Lotus Orchard this coming winter. Join us now to create healthy homes for them by digging holes, adding compost, and covering the soil with mulch. Every little bit helps!
     
    LIGHTER SEVA
    For a more relaxing seva , we have loads of lavender to be collected, and some that needs to be taken off its stems. Lavender has a delightful scent with very calming properties.
     
    We also are hoping to have chickens join the GreenFriends family. You can help prepare for their arrival by priming and painting the chicken house. Creativity with paint is welcome but not required.
     
    We love our deer here at M.A. Center, and hope you’ll catch a glimpse when you visit. We do need to be sure they keep out of the orchards, though, as they love to eat the trees’ leaves! Handy volunteers can help by attaching latches to the gates. Some gates are an easy fix and others require a bit of creativity.  
     
    You can serve in the orchards Tuesday through Saturday, as it suits your schedule. Please RSVP by the day before with a message at (510) 586-2990. See you soon! More about GreenFriends Farm >
