Howdy all …
Life continues on at a pace at PHQ in Melbourne.
While our focus has been on creating 50,000 new poppies for the RSL for their annual Poppy Appeal in 2018 … we are also working towards our stem quota for our grand finale spectacular at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra for Remembrance Day 2018. All exciting stuff, and all consuming in so many ways. So if you are thinking about making poppies for us for either of these projects … we would absolutely love it!!
However, in the meantime, there will be workshops and talks and making and chatting and enjoying the comraderie of working towards a pair of common (if rather lofty) goals.
If you are Melbourne based, we meet regularly at the East Malvern RSL … Tuesdays and Thursdays most weeks (although there will be some disruption to the timetable in April so keep your eyes on the facebook group) from 10.00 until 3.30ish. You are welcome to join us anytime … lunch is always great. And, until June, second Monday of the month at Fed Square from 12.00 til 2.00 p.m. More will be announced soon.
It occurs to me that together we are an incredible force to be reckoned with … and we’ve already shown what we can achieve on a micro and at a macro level. Amazing things. Amazing friendships. Tentacles of connection to past and present … reaching out into our community and bringing us all together to create such wonderful far reaching works. How proud we should all be. Waxing lyrical here lol
So … with that in mind I want to tell you about another wonderful project with heart that’s reaching out into the community. Grounded in love and connection on so many levels and achieving the most amazing things … The Baby Trees Project and Beekeeper Parade.
I have to say, I have never, in my life, been so awestruck by an individual as I am by Koky Saly … chief beekeeper at Beekeeper Parade. I have written about Beekeeper before on this blog … so I won’t go through it all again … however if you are Melbourne based (and even if you are not) you now have the opportunity to hear Koky talk live about his background, his project(s), his vision and the inspiration behind it all … and believe me when I say, you will be so inspired by this man and his vision … this is pure heart stuff … so PLEASE register right now …
Oh and by the way … lucky me (no pressure) and two other awe inspiring and equally magnetic individuals Bec Scott (Streat) and Chris Cincotta (Humans in Melbourne) get share our equally inspiring stories on the same stage as Koky … in the hope that we can ignite the spark that encourages you to follow your dreams …
