We are constantly developing Dhagpo Dedrol Ling, with various projects in progress in order to create favourable conditions for people wishing to practice. All of these projects are financed by donations, for which we are very grateful.

The priority project for 2016 is the clearing of the woods that is now required by the French law.

The commune of Plazac was chosen as a pilot village in the region for the implementation of a new law concerning the clearing of undergrowth in an area of 50m around buildings.
In fact, the Dordogne is the second department in France for the start of fires and the authorities asked the municipalities to ensure that the systematic clearing is respected.
In our centre this represents an area of 10,000m², especially around the barn and between the drupkang and the retreat houses.
As this clearance had never been done before and due to the difficult access of the area we had to ask a company to do the work, which were done during the first week of May. The costs were appr. 5,000 €.

There is also the possibility to help us by becoming friends of marfond.
