Local Engaged Sanghas
In response to the climate crisis, other forms of environmental degredation and the basic motivation to connect explore our interdependence with the biosphere, a number of local “earth” or “green” sanghas have formed. Some are mature, others are just getting organized. We all know the power of local so we at One Earth Sangha want to do all that we can to support these groups by helping you find one another, building awareness in local communities, sharing earth-dharma as well as ideas for caring practice in action.
We’ll provide overviews and updates from each local earth sangha as well as website and contact information to help you make the connection.
If you have a green group you’d like us to know about, send an email to gro.a1603615258hgnas1603615258htrae16036152581@tce1603615258nnoc1603615258.
