Kanjini Co-Op Annual
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
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 share.
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
