First HRN event for 2011! Thursday 27 January

Our first event for the year will be a dinner, with an update from the Chile building project and a transition message from Rob Hopkins. (Rescheduled from late last year as it was a busy time for everyone!) See our previous blog post for more info about the message from Rob Hopkins and the update from Chile...

The dinner will be at the Savoia, 7pm Thursday 27 January. Dinner is a set menu with bookings in advance, in line with our sustainable eating out guidelines for minimising food waste. Please book with us, by email or phone - 5348 3636.

On the topic of Chile, a long overdue big thank you to everyone involved in helping to raise funds for the Chilean community of El Manzano who were affected by the earthquake early last year, particularly those who were involved in last year's benefit dinner, gig and art auction. It was a wonderful night with a delicious dinner, excellent company and fantastic music to dance to. Thanks to the cooks, the musicians, organisers and helpers and also special thanks to the artists who donated their art works for the silent auction and to those who donated prizes for the raffle. See a few pics from the night below. :-)

It will be great for us all to hear a much awaited update on the progress of their project that we helped support AND learn a little more about sustainable building!

Enjoying the delicious local organic feast prepared for dinner.

who kicked off their shoes to dance...
and enjoying themselves while they were at it!
Also, advance notice that the next Edible weed walk with Alexis Pitsopoulos will be on Sunday 30 January. More details in next week's blog or email us for early bookings.
