Solstice dinner with a difference

On Wednesday June 22nd HRN will celebrate Yule (the winter solstice/longest night of the year) at the Daylesford Town Hall at 7pm.
This year Gary Thomas is going to make up some shared plates from our ingredients.
The challenge is:
                              we, the eaters of this dinner, provide  all the ingredients from our own gardens, gleaned from public spaces, preserved or processed from either of these, or that have been gifted or that received outside the monetary economy.
We are aiming to have an enjoyable celebration where all ingredients and labour are freely given and shared as a foray into a different approach to living in community.
There will be creative effort put into limiting our buying of anything for the dinner, including energy to cook and stay warm. Discussion over dinner will be invited about where things came from, how they were produced, what we were not able to obtain in this way, etc and there will be an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the ‘gifts’.

Join us in this adventure!
If you'd like to attend, please let us know by June 3rd what ingredients or help you are able to offer for the dinner so the menu can be constructed,  or simply if you would like to come along .... drinks, music, poetry,etc are other possibilities you could offer to freely share.
Hoping to hear from you soon…
the HRN schemers

If you're booking into the Transition Training weekend (28/29th May) that's great! You will have to book with SHARE, but could you also let us know, so we have some idea of how many of us HRN representatives can attend....Thanks
