Community Seva Day

Fall Seva Fest | October 2016

On October 15, 2016, volunteers from around the Bay Area came together to prepare soil for the new Lotus Orchard at MA Center for the Center's fourth Community Seva Day. After a beginning prayer, we worked together to cover the plot with reused paper plates, cardboard, and bark mulch. In the afternoon, we paused for fun and games with bubbles, a scavenger hunt for kids, and a cake walk fundraiser for the new orchard.
