We had a lovely morning cleaning stupas then spent a few hours after lunch planting erosion-preventing native plants on the steep hillsides around the stupas. Many thanks to all who helped.
We had several working bees between January – May 2021. Many thanks to all the fabulous volunteers who cleaned, sanded and painted: Melissa, Bex, Abby, Naomi, Chris, Jess and Greg, Bruce, Katia, Dean, Tony the neighbour who kindly helped with plastering and Dave the painter for useful advice and paint. We didn’t quite get it finished and will be painting again in Spring 2021.
The old one kept springing leaks, so we now have a beautiful new water tank for cleaning and painting the stupas
A very pleasant day cleaning the Stupas. Thanks to all the helpers: Tom, Bruce, Peter, Karen, Christine, Dave, Cooper, Molly and Annie.
Adding drainage pipe to bottom of trench and back filling.
Many thanks to Tom, Lay, Peter, Bruce, Annie.
Here we’re digging, making boxing and pouring concrete for at the northern end of the Stupas by the Parinirvana Stupa. It’s a particularly narrow part of the hill and the original retaining walls weren’t symmetrical. So we decided to make this section into a nice curved wall at the end which will make the two sides symmetrical. Eventually there will be a 2m wide gate at the northern end. The curved wall was an alteration to the original plan so we had to cut away a small section of the original wall before we could do anything else.
These photos are from two working bees in August and September 2019.
Many thanks to Lay, Tom, Peter, Bruce, Molly, Dave, Annie.

It’s been a busy February/March digging holes and filling them with steel and concrete. Many thanks to Dominic, Simone, Tom, Michael and Bruce for all your hard work.
This Sunday morning we’ll be transporting builders mix to the stupas with buckets and a tractor.
Please bring shovel (if you have one), hat and water bottle. If you can bring something to contribute for lunch that’s great, but if you can’t, no worries.
Come for a short time or the whole morning.
