PIMC's mindful social action group, Engaging The Dharma (ETD), invites you to a bite-sized workshop on how to support our beautiful local forests in the midst of global warming.

If you love our local forests and green spaces, and you're wondering what you can do to have an impact, this workshop is for you! Please join us Sunday, 8/25, after the Dharma Gathering.
