Agricultural Technology Program with The Urban Wild | 2019

The Urban Wild is a New York City-based nonprofit organization dedicated to making sustainable agricultural technology more accessible to areas affected by food insecurity. We believe we can educate, empower and ultimately, uplift vulnerable communities out of food-insecure states through the use of localized sustainable agriculture and pathways to opportunities in the green sector.

Humanistic Buddhist Monastic Life Program with Woodenfish | 2018

The Humanistic Buddhist Monastic Life Program (HBMLP) is an intensive experience in the Buddhist way of life. It offers participants exposure to a way of being that is profoundly different from the constant busyness and distraction of contemporary society. Meditation and contemplation provide a connection to the world and other people. In the process of experiencing a different way of life in a Buddhist temple, one discovers different ways of approaching life in the rest of the world. (from Woodenfish)
