The Story So Far...
Dzamling Gar was purchased in 2012, and thanks to the generosity of our donors has been developing rapidly. So far, the focus of the development has been on the area at the bottom of the property, at this point we have achieved the following:
The clearing of the area so that a temporary Gonpa could be erected.
Commenced work on the basement area that will become a multi-use events space
Establishment of a cafeteria area, suitable for diverse activities
Commenced work on the swimming pool
Extensive planting of the areas around the houses and Gonpa. It is beginning to look beautiful!
Throughout the Gar a permaculture system has been introduced and grey from each house is recycled and feeds the gardens in which many plants can now be harvested and eaten. We intend to apply these principles across the whole project as it develops.
Two of the houses on the site have now been completed. Rinpoche’s house with apartments for His guests, and the Dzamling Gar administration offices and apartments.
