Agritourism Advisory Committee Meeting
Upcounty Regional Services Center12900 Middlebrook RoadGermantown, MD 20874 Wednesday, October 17, 2018, 6 – 7pm Committee Meetings are open to the public - Anyone with an interest in the topic of Agritourism in Montgomery County is welcome to attend. Background: Increased interest in the economic development of Montgomery Countys award-winning Agricultural Reserve through tourism has led to this study in order to better understand ongoing issues raised by farmers, planners, entrepreneurs and county officials. The research will examine various aspects of agritourism, including events held on farms, wineries, breweries, produce stands and farm-to-table offerings, to understand the land use regulations associated with these activities. It will look at applicable sections of the countys zoning ordinance and its subdivision regulations to determine if modifications in policy are needed to provide clarity and direction for property owners. The project will involve an advisory committee of stakeholders drawn from county agencies, local farms and civic groups to advise the Planning Department team. Part of the communications effort is to ensure ongoing dialogue among members of this group through eletters, questionnaires and other outreach efforts. A secondary goal of outreach for this study is to raise the level of community awareness of the Agricultural Reserves value and how this rural area can continue to thrive as a powerful economic asset in the county. A comparative review of agricultural tourism practices in other jurisdictions is to be completed by consultants (Rhodeside & Harwell and EPR). The final product of the study will be a white paper outlining economic development strategies and recommendations for modifying county regulations, based on feedback and research.

Lhabab Duchen
Montgomery County, MD Wednesday, October 31, 2018 Lhabab Düchen is one of the four Buddhist festivals commemorating four events in the life of the Buddha, according to Tibetan traditions. This is a Buddhist festival celebrated to observe the descent of Buddha from heaven back to earth. Buddha had left for heaven at the age of 41, having ascended to The Heaven of Thirty-Three (Trayastrimsa) in order to give teachings to benefit the gods in the desire realms and to repay the kindness of his mother by liberating her from Samsara. He was exhorted by his follower and representative Maudgalyayana to return, and after a long debate managed to return. This is considered to be one of the eight great deeds of the Buddha.  On Lhabab Duchen, the effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied ten million times. Category: Holidays
