Work days provide an opportunity to join fellow practitioners for work practice in sangha. Hosted by the resident volunteers at IRC, work days feature two group sits and lunch together, along with morning and afternoon work periods. Each month IRC hosts a work day to support the care of the center and our precious lands. You can help with either indoor or garden tasks.
