A Buddhist conservation group focused on ecological restoration.
Founded in 1997, the Earth Sangha is a nonprofit public charity based in the Washington, DC area and is committed to practical environmental action as an expression of the Buddhist way of life. (Sangha is a Buddhist term for congregation or community.) We work in the spirit of Buddhist practice, but our members and volunteers come from a wide variety of religious and secular backgrounds. In the Washington area, we operate an ecological restoration program to restore native forests and meadows, stabilize streams, and control invasive alien plants. We also work with local schools on environmental education and schoolyard greening projects. All of our DC-area work is designed for public participation, as a venue for environmental education. In the Dominican Republic, we operate the Tree Bank Hispaniola, an agroforestry program designed to improve the lives of farmers along the central-northern reach of the Dominican Republic-Haiti border, and to restore the region's native forests.
In addition to environmental work, we host weekly meditationsessions in Alexandria, Virginia, along with discussions of the Dharma (the traditional Buddhist teachings). These sessions are free and open to all.
