Branch Out Seattle 2024

Saturday, January 6th, Marici Fellowship “Seattle” held its first Branch-out event of the season. 15 volunteers were joined by H.E. Zaya Sakya Rinpoche and Dagmo Lhanze Sakya. Prayers for the event were led by resident lamas of Sakya Monastery, Ven. Migmar, and Ven. Kelsang.

Together we planted 87 trees and shrubs at Discovery Park in Magnolia, continuing to transform what was once an active military base into a beautiful upland forest in the middle of the city.

Thank you all who were able to attend, and we want to express our deepest gratitude to H.E. Avikrita Vajra Rinpoche for creating the Marici Branch-out Initiative and giving us all this amazing opportunity to care for our planet!
