As part of the Buddhafield vision we are drawn to nature as the primary context for our life and practice — to the beauty of the natural world, to the living experience of interconnectedness it gives us, to the ancient sacred sites and landscapes around us.

Therefore we wish to create sanctuaries and shrines, for our own and others' benefit; to live simply and to live lightly on the land, using appropriate technology and exemplifying best practice in all that we do.

First Light in the Garden: 27 January–3 February 2012

Lottery Award

Buddhafield was awarded £10,000 by the Big Lottery Fund in January 2011 to plant and develop a forest garden at Broadhembury as described in our permaculture plan. The project took place 27 January—3 February 2012.

Over 7 days we planted trees and other tasks to create our Forest Garden and made our exciting Woodland Walkway. You can find a summary of the event on the Buddhafield blog.
