Kanjini Co-Op Annual Gathering

Friday 18 Sept 2015 - Sunday 20 Sept 2015

Kanjini is a mutually supportive and diverse community creating a joyful and abundant existence while being sensitive to sustainability and our ecological footprint.
We have purchased a beautiful 7500 acre property one hour west of Cairns on crystal-clear Emerald creek to realise that vision.

The intent of the gathering is to invite people from the wider community, who support our vision for this land in any way, to come and experience this amazing property first-hand and share a weekend with us.

You can camp with us for three days and two nights or you can come for any part of the weekend or just a few hours if that's all you have time for.
We'd love you to come along and share in our dream property; meet the members; explore the property by bush-walking and/or guided tours; participate in workshops or put yours on the white board; swim in the 20 acre lake or jump into the refreshing Emerald Creek; check out some of the new camp grounds; share your ideas and thus help shape the common dream; ask us your questions; sit around the fire and look at the moon and the stars; listen to or make live music; celebrate and meditate; and have a great time with wonderful people on our magic piece of paradise.

Friday will be pizza night; we are bringing a pizza oven and making up some pizza bases so bring your favourite topping and cheese so you can have your favourite pizza.

Saturday will be Hungi night; we will be doing a big Hungi up with vegetarian and meat options available we will be asking for a donation for this and maybe bring some salad or a side dish to share.

We are also open if anyone would like to come and give a talk, teach a class, or play some music or  has anything else to
We can always use some helping hands so if you would like to come help just let us know.

Please help to spread the word to anyone you think might be supportive of Kanjini Co-Op or be interested in what we are doing.

Please RSVP through email form or via facebook, thanks
