Our garden project in conjunction with Wynyard High School has been so successful, there are lots of tomatoes that need bottling! Netty has taken on this task and could use some help. She will be bottling tomatoes, making pasta sauce and, depending on the quantity harvested, possibly tomato paste as well. Also making pumpkin soup.
If you’d like to learn hands-on about bottling and preserving, and at the same time help Netty out, here are the details:
It will be on Thursday 30th April, from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
Place – 24-26 Belton Street, Wynyard
Please advise me – Antoinette Schrammeyer – if you will be coming.
A brief note to share with you the news about the FIRST Introduction to the Heart and Open Heart Meditation evening in Burnie this weekend (Sat) and the THIRD SONW in the NW (1st time in Burnie!!). SONW stands for Secret of Natural Walking (not Secrets of the North West )
The introduction to the Heart, the non-physical or spiritual heart is a 2-hour informal evening – open to anyone – to learn about this treasure inside all of us, its function, gift to us when used or used more and how easy, helpful and joyful meditation can be with the help of the heart. It also includes a complete Heart Meditation session
SONW (follow link for more info) is an immensely deep walking practice and workshop where attunements are given, similar to other energy-workshops. Anyone can join. Natural walking has often immediate positive impact on physical, emotional or mental issues. Additionally it will support your meditation, yoga or other practices.
A FIRST set of the profoundly and deeply touching, healing Open Heart workshops (Levels 1 & 2) are also schedule for May – please stay tuned.

Heart and Open Heart Meditation evening (Cost: $7.50 – Conc. $5) Sat 25 April, 6:30pm-8:30pm; More info: Gill or Shar (as above).
I’m hosting a special one-time screening of the film “Frackman”, Wednesday May 13th at Metro Cinemas Burnie… 6-30pm – 8-03pm.
Thank you to those of you who signed the petition to prevent fracking in Tasmania and if possible, please share this with your friends and families so they can book their tickets so this viewing can go ahead.
This issue is important to me and I have heard first hand the devastating effects of this to our country and to fellow Queenslanders. I love Tasmania and feel the need to help protect it from the greed, and the devastating impact that this could have on our State and our farmlands.. For the future of our children I feel it necessary to inform people..
Knowledge is power, and with that, we can make informed decisions instead of listening to half truths feed to us via the media.
I’m so pleased to have secured this venue.. I would like to also thank the Wharf Hotel in Wynyard for their support and in offering the theatre space as a venue and the Film society for the equipment usage during my inquiries with Frackman in trying to get this movie to our community.
As I had a few things in the pipeline I’m pleased that after much persistence and perseverance that we are able to get this happening on the North West..
