We are pleased to announce that on April 16th, 2015 Rangjung Yeshe Gomde California received approval of our Use Permit to operate as a full-fledged retreat center in Mendocino County. The approval by the Planning Commission was unanimous and there were very little questions and no opposition presented. In fact we received about 50 letters from members and the community. Thank you very much for your support. Now that we have been approved we need to apply for what is called an “organized camp permit” which is issued by the County’s Environmental Health Department. This permit oversees and regulates our kitchen, food preparation areas, dining hall areas along with the lodging components on the land, and water and septic systems. We will have our first formal inspection June 1st of this year about 10 days before our official summer season starts. PLEASE CONSIDER ATTENDING WORK WEEK TO ASSIST US IN PREPARING FOR THIS INSPECTION. Every year during work week we prepare the land for our busy summer season, which always involves clearing the campground and putting up tents, clearing trails, cleaning the houses for visiting Lamas and other guests, and getting our kitchen and dining facilities in order.  Because of this year's inspection by the Environmental Health Department, and because of changes to our existing facilities, we will add to this already daunting list: Your help will be instrumental in ensuring Gomde is ready for our Summer programs. If you are not able to attend work week you can make a donation towards supplies and materials needed to meet the requirements of the new permit. This includes the purchasing of fire extinguishers, new bedding, lighting and emergency supplies, and improvements to our water system. You can make a one time donation here: https://gomdeusa.org/giving/one-time-donation/ or mail a check to RYG CA, PO Box 162, Leggett, CA 95585. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you this summer. The Gomde California Team
