Apple tree action

The terraces above the Europe Center are getting a new look: many apple trees have been planted over the past weeks, lining the paths leading up to the summer course plateau. This will give the plateau a beautiful park-like atmosphere, protect the slopes from landslides and provide shading for the tents.

Even in the pouring rain, our sangha friends dug holes, put wire fence protection for the roots, carefully put the young trees into the ground, protecting the stems with covers and tying them to wooden poles so they will stay in place in any kind of Allgäu weather. We are looking forward to lots of beautiful white and pink apple blossoms on our hill next spring. For the apples, we might still have to wait another year or two. ;)
