Date(s) - May 24, 2017
Time - 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Location - Ceres Environment Park
“A lot of stuff we spend money on actually makes life less enjoyable in the long run. And a lot of cheap and free stuff is very enjoyable indeed. So why choose the stuff that requires us to work all the time and get stressed about bank balances?” – Annie Raser-Rowland
Conscious consumption. How do we consciously reduce our consumption so that it fuels our happiness and doesn’t deplete it, while reducing our footprint and impact on the greater world?
Anne is the co-author of the book, The Art of Frugal Hedonism (www.frugalhedonism.com), is a horticulturalist and artist, and works at CERES (where this event is held!), giving people advice on how to grow lots of tomatoes. Annie and Adam Grubb, who runs Very Edible Gardensand co-founded Permablitz Melbourne wrote this book together.
We’ll hear Annie’s story and what brought her to being as frugal as possible and how she does it. Then we will have an open community discussion to explore the topic for ourselves and share.
As usual, following Annie’s story, we will have a facilitated open-dialogue between us all to expand our thoughts, reflect on the topic for ourselves and hopefully take away new clarity and understanding. We will have light refreshments and nibbles available for us to mingle over afterwards before heading home refreshed.
We will be limiting these gatherings to 35 people so we can maintain intimacy. You can pay cash or card (preferred) at the door, if we haven’t already reached capacity.
You can get tickets here: https://
Also available at the door (credit card only please), if spots are available. We will let you know online if we’ve reached 35 people.
