Building, building and more building - workshops galore and a film night too

Michael Reynolds of Garbage Warrior and Earthship fame is soon to join us here in sunny (and occasionally somewhat rainy) Daylesford. SHARE are organising 2 events on 24th February (details below), with a little bit of help from us and others, and in anticipation of this we are showing the film Garbage Warrior again.

We will show Garbage Warrior on Thursday 10th February, 7:30pm at the Town Hall. Please come along and join us, and be inspired to attend Michael's public talk and/or workshop on February 24th. Also, our new Sustainability Co-ordinator at the Hepburn Shire, Jill Berry will discuss suggestions/ideas for projects for which her department could apply for funding in the forthcoming council budget. Get your thinking caps on and let's discuss your ideas just before we view the film. Short and sweet.


And also on the theme of building...

Peter Cowman is running a number of events in the near future in the Castlemaine and Daylesford areas, with an Open House on the topic of "Architecture and the Meaning of Life," this Sunday 6th February, 2-4:30pm. The updated venue is the Ray Bradbury room, Frederick Street (behind the market building) in Castlemaine. And this one is just a gold coin donation too! See the Living Architecture Centre site for all the details.

And out the other way from Daylesford town...

The Satyananda Yoga Ashram in Rocklyn is running a Yoga and Earth Building Render Workshop from 17th to 21st February. See the flier here.
