Touring Cohousing Communities –
Pinakarri Community, Hamilton Hill
Saturday 26 August 2017 – 2-4pm
I learned to love cohousing communities by visiting them: seeing these distinctly unique and beautiful places, and meeting the people that live the cohousing lifestyle. Join me on a tour of cohousing communities in and around Perth.
Through Pinakarri we learn to love.
Pinakarri in Hamilton Hill, near Fremantle, is an award-winning, intentional cohousing community of around two dozen people. The community consists of 12 architect designed houses and a common house.
Join long time resident Robyn Williams and learn more about how Pinakarri came about, how people live here and manage it, and what they have learned along the way.

Cost: $10 per person, Afternoon tea provided.

PAST EVENTS & WORKSHOPS
Living Together – Living Better Workshop Series March/April 2017
In collaboration with Meriam Salama from The Henry Project, in March/April 2017, Green Fabric hosted the successful ‘Living Together – Living Together Workshop Series. Over three Sunday afternoons, these half day workshops provided participants with a taste of what community living is like and whether it may be for them. The video is an impression of this series.
The Future of Organisations Workshop Series
Want to create the organisations of the future? We live in a world where resilience, flexibility and innovation are needed to thrive. More collaborative, democratic and flat organisations where ownership and power is shared are necessary. How do we build these organisations? What are some of the options? What can we learn from others across the globe?
These were just some of the questions we explored in the workshop series of three ‘The Future of Organisations’ which Green Fabric hosted in partnership with Adam Jorlen from enkel between March and May 2017.

Stories from the heart
23 July 2017
An Evening Of Live Storytelling, Hosted by Lisa Evans of Speaking Savvy.
The theme of the event was journeys, personal journeys, all true, and told without any notes used. I was one of the story tellers and told the audience about ‘the best gift ever’ (video coming soon…)
It was an enormously fun, positive, inspiring, emotional and uplifting evening. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend you come along to the next one, to listen, or maybe share one of your stories. Speak to Lisa from Speaking Savvy for more info.
Stories from the Heart is a charity event, fundraising for good causes, it was a privilege to be a part of it.
