Today after 10 am five of us went to Glentui to do some work. After picking a couple of dozens of free range eggs and strawberry jam from the neighboorhood farm, we arrived at Glentui, took the tools out from the car, opened the Hut and did a 16th Karmapa meditation on the veranda of the Hut. Just after it we had a nice time throwing the rice used previously for Mandala practice.
Today we finished planting the long row of small trees at the end of the land and the first bush was planted by the hut. After the hard work we had a really nice picnic with green salad, sandwiches and nice tea.
After lunch we planted some more trees and cleaned up some older trees that were planted one year ago. We also fought with gorse.
At 5 pm we left for Christchurch, tired but happy after the work done.
