Be a gardener.
Dig a ditch,
toil and sweat
and turn the earth upside down
and seek the deepness
and water the plants in time.
-Julian of Norwich

We're looking for early birds who can help us keep Cranaleith looking its best on select Tuesdays this summer. Can't tell a weed from a flower? That's ok! We'll help you get started then let you spend quiet time tending the earth while you cultivate peace in your own heart.

*all dates are contingent on weather conditions. Forecasted rain will result in the cancellation of the gardening session.

Please park in the lower parking lot. As you enter the driveway, please turn right at the fork and follow the driveway to the lower parking lot. The stairs/ramp will take you to the Administration Building.

Please wear closed-toe shoes and clothing that will protect you from the sun. If you have your own gloves and trowels, please bring them. We'll provide the cool drinks and the peaceful setting. Kindly send your availability to Sokmala Chy (So-ma-la Chai) at
Help us update our volunteer records!
As we begin to re-open to the public, we are calling on our community of volunteers to help us update our records in order to maintain a safe environment for all! If you have not yet filled out your updated volunteer application, please print it, fill it out, and bring it with you on your first gardening date. Thank you for your cooperation and for choosing to spend your time at Cranaleith!
