All of the improvements to our practice centers take place within the context of environmental respect and long-term sustainability. Zen Center is deeply committed to protecting and restoring the fragile ecosystems we live in.

As an exemplar of environmental stewardship since our founding, we build and remodel structures in alignment with our values and carefully integrate Zen Center’s human presence harmoniously with local ecosystems.

Projects that highlight our environmental commitment are:

  • our efforts to get Tassajara 100% free of fossil fuels
  • the new Tassajara Retreat Hall
  • the new Green Gulch Resident Housing
  • City Center renovations
