Sunday English class for children is getting very popular. We combine English, Dhamma and environmental awareness in this class. The children get to learn how to separate garbage, reuse, recycle. Last week they made paper pot, and this coming week they will plant their own vegetable.
Ven.Dhammananda is preparing the material for the 3-month retreat August through October. This is a small group of residents, usually end up an international group, so the media will be both Thai and English. Do come and join us.
We need volunteers with good background on the latest on computer, sound system, etc. Even pure labor is appreciated.
