Buddhafield Family-Friendly Events

By bethbuddhafield on Sun, 10 Mar, 2024 - 17:22

Buddhafield has been a home from home to many families for decades; children and families growing year after year from the mossy ground of the Buddhafield. It’s not surprising that people return to our events again every year to reconnect with the land, with each other and with the Buddha’s Dharma.
