Gomde Pyrénées Community Program:
To learn more about our community work projects, please visit our web page: http://www.gomde.fr/support-our-community/
Gomde Pyrénées Main House Construction Project:
Our objective is to complete our renovations to the main building, which will make it compliant with safety regulations and provide access to persons with disabilities.
We are working on improvements to emergency exits and our safety equipment (fire doors, extinguishers etc). We are also adapting rooms to increase the capacity and the quality of our accomodation, enlarging room windows and refurbishing.
Gomde Pyrénées 3 Year Retreat House Project:
One of our main new projects is the renovation of the 3 year retreat houses, a charming and beautiful cluster of old French country houses. We are working on the restoration and improvement of these houses, where we will enlarge the windows to enhance the beautiful natural light and offer more open views of the sky and surrounding nature.
We plan to set up a professional wood workshop to enable us to do this work ourselves with the help of skilled professional carpenters and experienced joiners.
Landscaping & Gardening Project:
We would love to establish our garden in a way that it becomes maintenance free, where the types of plants we include will naturally deter the growth of weeds
We have also recently purchased a digger for levelling grounds and preparing pits ahead of installing a water filtering system.
Ruin Conversion Project:
The mas (main house) though large has limits for our longer term aspirations, and we wish to rebuild a ruin that directly neighbours the main house. We are hoping to create a larger temple, a library, dining room, and housing for our teachers and Lamas, and our permanent residents.
If you are interested to support any of our current programs and have the possibility to help, either by way of offering your service or time in the area where professional skills are needed, or by way of offering a donation, we would be delighted!
