On the first Sunday of the month, the beginning of the lecture is especially for children. After this short talk, children leave the zendo to participate in their own program. Activities include seasonal farm projects, mindfulness, yoga, contemplative handwork and ritual.

Participating families are invited to stay for tea, juice, muffins and the farmer's market outside the zendo.

Sign-in begins at 9:45 am near the side entrance of the zendo. No program in April and December due to sesshin.

Suggested donation: $20 per family
