do it together.
We wanted to share some pictures
and stories about a great weekend we had a few months ago.
Out on the land at our Hearts &
Minds meeting a few moths ago we had such a wonderful experience
an outstanding group of people and all their lovely children too.
We did have a few projects to work on
over the weekend, it was so great to get the extra hand to work
First we did a lot of work on building
the support structure to go down in to the septic trench for the
camping. it was a masterpiece designed by Svargo, using old window
frames with aluminium sheets left over form the old sugar terminal
Cairns. This structure ended up being approximately 700mm wide and
800mm high and just over ten meters long. It took 7 people, a Prado,
a trailer and some group evaluations/ brainstorming to transport it
around 1.5 km, and DID IT! So great to see how people working
together can achieve the unachievable.
After that we were all ready for a swim
so we headed back to the lake to fix up the pontoon. Over the
we paddled it back to shore so that we could take out the barrels
with water and see if we could fix some of the barrels and dispose
any that were no longer usable.
The kids had a blast helping us with
this project they did a lot of the paddling to help and some of them
even did the big swim back from the middle of the lake.
The food was another great thing that
just came together so wonderfully over the weekend we had great
veggie platters throughout the days for healthy snacks, yummy fruits
for breakfast and a great spread for our BBQ dinner. We even enjoyed
marshmallows around the fire in the evening followed by a beautiful
night of camping under the stars. What a magical place to see the
stars and wake up to the birds in the morning.
These are the kind of weekends that
really remind us what it is we are working for. Seeing the fun that
can be had when working together to achieve a common goal its what
are all striving for and what an amazing place to share these
We would also like to thank everyone
that made it out to share this beautiful weekend with us, and look
forward to our next gathering.
