Community Creativity Day and Recycled Monument

Community Creativity Day and Recycled Monument

Greetings Folk, Friends & Hermits
The CTO, Jikani and the Hogsback Residenents  are getting together. We going to build a huge tree monument, made of recycled and salvaged materials, in celebration of community, conscious living, creativity and our natural heritage (trees).
We would like to launch this new Hogsback Statue at the Country Xmas in July Festival this year.
We will be having 4 build days at Butterfly Bistro at the Saturday markets starting @ 10h00.
On the following Saturdays.
1 June’ 13
15 June’ 13
29 June’ 13
We will then gather on the 13 July at Jikani to assemble our new creation. (Jikani is planning on opening a recycling centre at their offices.)
Please Please come get involved and help us build this totem of creativity and recycling.
What a wonderful way to spend the day, and celebrate Butterfly Bistros 2nd birthday, with fellow community members, being creative and breaking barriers of segregation.
