In the midst of all the work we do for our community and our world, sometimes we forget to nurture ourselves. Drawing on Joanna Macy’s The Work That Reconnects, this full-day workshop will explore resilience in turbulent times. Set in the beautiful Darebin Parklands, this workshop will provide space to grieve, renew and empower those working for a better world.
This workshop is to support transitioners, permaculturalists, greenies, climate activists, environmentalists, upskillers, community developers, occupiers or diy-ers that are troubled by the state of the world, overworked, overstressed, disillusioned, despairing, burnt out, or on that path.
Children are warmly welcome. There will be children’s activities and childminding through the day.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
$20 full | $10 concession | children free

Join TD members for a drink and a chat and hear from another Transition group in the UK. We are lucky enough to have Jess from Transition Town Brixton to speak to us about their experiences with developing a local currency, the Brixton Pound. Perhaps we’ll even float the idea of a Darebin Dollar….
This year we plan to hold monthly Transition in the Pub get togethers on the last Wednesday of the month so come along, meet some members actively involved in transition and talk turkey.
There will be a talk on Transition (2-3pm), if any TD peeps would like to co-present or be on a little Q&A panel contact sally.macadams[at]gmail.com
There is a cover charge of $10 to cover the venue etc.
Includes a showcase of 3D printers!
