Working Bee at Wurruk’an
In anticipation of the end of the “Simpler Way” project out here, we are hosting two final working bees for the year. We will try to finish all of our ambitious projects, including the construction of a hessian-sack earthbag seating area, a bush-carpentry shelter, enormous vegetable gardens, tree plantings for forestry and food, the final stages of a tiny-house-on-wheels, raising ducklings and many more fun endeavours. Organic food will be provided for all three days for free, gluten free options will also be available, though snacks and meal contributions would definitely be appreciated. In the evenings, we will play some films on the projector and/or run workshops on things like: fruit tree propagation, Sketch-Up (for designing buildings etc.), keeping ducks for eggs and meat, paper making, knitting, natural building, clay refining for pottery or any number of other skills, pending where the interest is.
If you’d like to join us, send an email via our contact page so that we have accurate numbers for catering purposes. You’ll need a tent, warm sleeping bag, water bottle, hat, sunscreen, snacks, films to share, workshop ideas and anything else that you think might be relevant.
When: November 13, 14 and 15 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) AND
December 18, 19 and 20 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday)
How to get here from Melbourne: Take either the Traralgon V/Line train or the Bairnsdale V/Line train and get off at Moe station. From there it’s a 45 minute walk or 15 minute bike ride to the property. Train cost is about $7.40 each way for concession, and about $13 for full fare. Alternatively, you can drive along the M1 and take the second exit to Moe.
We look forward to seeing you all down here for these fun events!
