Austin Zen Center. Rob Wilson, of Austin Zen Center, says their path toward sustainability started in late 2011 when the theme for their annual practice period was "global warming." At about the same time money was donated for a solar installation -- which currently generates more electricity than the facility requires much of the Fall, Winter, and Spring months. AZC has worked with Climate Buddies - Austin to get a climate assessment, which he described as a "pretty easy process," and are planning best next steps. AZC was recently certified as a wildlife habitat. They maintain an all vegetarian kitchen, and have monthly eco-team meetings, first Saturday of every month. This meeting schedule coincides well with the weekly sitting schedule.
