AGM THURSDAY 19TH OCTOBER 2017

October 19 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

$3 - $5

URGENT!!! Due to (once again) the unavailability of the Cooroy Primary School Hall, our meeting for the 19th October will be held in the Cooroy Primary School Resource Centre. To access the Cooroy Primary School Resource Centre, enter the gate at the southern end of the school nearest the traffic lights which is the staff car park. Unfortunately there is no kitchen at the Resouce Centre, so we have been forced to reluctantly cancel the caterers for the 19th. So there will be no meals for this upcoming meeting. There are facilities for tea making, so supper is still “on”.

*************************************************************************************************************************

This month’s meeting is the Annual General Meeting. It is expected that the business of the AGM should be complete within less than 40 minutes.

*************************************************************************************************************************

Following the business section of the AGM, our guest speaker is Susan Rodger of Eumundi Beef, who will give a presentation on ethics (or lack of them) in the Food Industry. Sue travelled to America as a guest of the Slow Food Movement where she learnt from some very passionate and well informed leaders in this field. She will explain who really pays for the the low prices of food we find in the our supermarkets, and ways we can help to make this industry fairer. A very passionate and thought provoking talk which may change the way you shop.

 

*************************************************************************************************************************

Our next guest speaker is Leonora, who will take us on a journey…………….

 

Here is a short description of what promises to be a memorable presentation:

Permaculture of the Soul

Join Leanora for an experiential journey to explore and discover who we are, and why we are here… a sort of adventure into the permaculture of the Soul.  In the centre of Zone  Zero, is ‘you’.  Leanora spent 25 years living on a Permaculture property in NZ, she co-created an eco house, and sustainable business growing lavender, and making essential oil and organic skin care products.  She currently lives in Bali and has be guiding sacred journeys to the heart to experience who we are at the deepest levels in order to heal the past and fully express our human potential.

Leanora will be presenting at the Conscious Life Festival 28-29th October, and offering a 3 day workshop called ‘The Sacred Alchemy of the Heart’ in Cootharaba on 24-26th November.  You can find out more about this work at www.embodytruth.com

Unfortunately, Susan Rodger who was also booked to speak on Thursday, is unable to attend. Hopefully she will be able to give her presentation at a future meeting.
