As a non-profit, all volunteer community Zen center, AZC depends on individual donations for nearly all of its projects. Here is a list of recent and current projects:
- Jodo Training Ground (current)
- Completed Projects 2018-19: Meditation Tholus/Front Zen Garden Fence/Zendo Exterior Painting/Refreshed Website/New Online Library Catalog/Additional Programs like Forest Bathing/Introduction of Teachers from other Sanghas
Jodo Training Grounds
The Jodo Training Grounds will be located in the southwest corner of the AZC property. It will be about 25' x 30' of finely crushed gravel to match the other landscaping and it will be covered - most likely with a sail-shade type of material. It will be a multi-use area, with bench seating for 10 or so. We anticipate it will be used for a variety of activities, including:
Please consider volunteering in the construction (taking place primarily during samu on Saturdays) and donating to help pay for the cost of materials.
Gassho (Palms Pressed Together)!
The outdoor meditation tholus was completed and dedicated in November 2018. Thank you to all our donors and Sangha members who generously donated financial resources, along with their time and labor to realize this important project.
The membership of AZC is always looking for donors - and not just financial. If you have an interest in volunteering for any of the above projects, just drop us a note on the Contact page.
