We’re gearing up for the busy season at Springwater Center…

While it doesn’t quite look or feel like spring in our neck of the woods we are preparing for a busy spring, summer and early fall.

Works in progress

Framing, electrical wiring and plumbing are near completion in Room One. Currently the bathroom is being installed. There may be a  projected completion date in the next update
We are giving titles to Toni’s  YouTube talks so that searches become easier. Staff member, Maggy Alleyne is working on this project as time allows.
Work on the updated website is moving along thanks to staff member, Mark Bruno.
Mark has also been working tirelessly on starting vegetables indoors and creating a center ornamental piece for the garden.
Our library is now very full after receiving a generous donation of over 100 books on Buddhist spirituality and other topics related to awareness from longtime member Geoff Swaebe. This gives a great opportunity to reorganize and add some new shelves. Staff members, Kieran Mead-Ward and Tom Klintworth will be spearheading that project.
