Dear Friends, Neighbours and Guests,

You are warmly invited to visit Lower Hamlet’s annual Open House late summer afternoon with speciality picnic foods and Vietnamese buffet – “nems” (spring rolls) guaranteed!

This relaxed and joyful celebration is a chance for anyone who has never been to Plum Village to visit us, as well as the lotus ponds, meditation halls and grounds. You can meet the nuns (and monks) to find out more about our community life and mindfulness practice.

Our Buffet includes fresh foods from our "Happy Farm" and organic gardens

This is a community occasion for our local neighbours, farmers and artisans, their families and children, to get together relaxingly and joyfully under the late summer afternoon sun.

We usually offer guided tours and musical interludes as well as unique dishes every year, reflecting the international cultures in our community.
