Okines Community House Term 4, 2021

Here we are, already in Term 4 with the year flying by. Heaps of events and activities to look forward to at Okines over the next few months leading up to Christmas.  We have Seniors Week activities starting next week, the Soirees are back in the garden, cooking classes, meditation, dancing, and lots more.

Okines will be closed over the Christmas period commencing Friday 24th of December 2021 (last day of opening will be Thursday 23rd) and we will be returning Monday 10th of January 2022. The Board and Staff of Okines Community House, Garden, Food Co-op, Film Society and Bike Shed would like to thank the community for their ongoing support and enthusiastic participation in our activities. A special thank you to our wonderful volunteers for the many hours that they have contributed throughout the year. It would not be possible to achieve all that we do without your involvement.

It is no exaggeration to say that Term Four, 2021 Okines Newsletter is another bumper issue. Hot off the press, it is packed full of information about what has been happening around the house as well as upcoming activities.  If you would like to be on the newsletter emailing list please let us know via info@nullokinescommunityhouse.com.au otherwise you can enjoy reading a copy here.

***A late entry that didn’t make it into our newsletter but we are very pleased to tell you about is an upcoming Lampshade Making Workshop on the 18th of December 2021 (just in time to create a wonderful gift for Christmas). Annie Giffard leads a relaxed small group where you will be provided with the steps, materials and tools needed to create a new, magnificent lampshade for ceiling or a lamp base.

What you will get out of the workshop:

– learn a new creative skill

– be inspired and refurb all your home shades

– create a handmade gift

– Enhance your existing talents

– Learn the skills and start a business

Most importantly, have lots of fun!! Your tutor Annie is also passionate about conscious living, if you have a shade at home you would love to refurbish, bring it along for show and tell and Annie will give you some tips and tricks on how to upcycle your old shades. Likewise with any bases that need beautifying. Please consider recycling a piece of fabric. 

No prior skills required, cost for the one day workshop is $120.

Still a few spaces left for this informal and informative Food For Thought evening on Friday night.Do you want to know more about Climate action on a local level? Unsure how you can make a difference on your own?
Join Jonny and Jacob from @southeastclimateaction at our next Food For Thought evening, Friday the 3rd of December.
Bookings: info@nullokinescommunityhouse.com.au, 6265 7016
"South East Climate Action (SECA) is a group of local residents who are taking positive action to help address the urgent issue of climate change.
As the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Report states, we have until 2030 to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 50%, or the future of the planet for our children will be very different from the lives we live today.
Net zero by 2050 is not enough! If we are not well on the way by 2030, we are locked into catastrophic climate change. We are determined to do something about this by initiating and promoting action at the local level, in our community and in our local government area.
Local community led actions on climate change have been shown to be effective and also help to address the growing problem of climate anxiety. By taking positive actions people feel much better about their future.
Our aims are:
To help reduce CO2 emissions throughout the South Eastern Region of Tasmania (Sorell area, Tasman Peninsula and beyond).
To promote education and community engagement around the widespread and potential catastrophic impacts of climate change (local and global impacts).
To develop and support projects that will result in reduced emissions and sustainable practices, through engagement and collaboration with existing community groups, local councils and elected officials."

Dr Jonny Stark is a marine ecologist who studies the effects of environmental change on marine ecosystems, and a father of 3 who is deeply concerned about the future world his children will live in.

Jacob is a health professional, who is passionate about promoting the awareness and reduction of the health impacts of a changing climate and sustainable changes that individuals and communities can make. A father of two, he is scared of what emissions inaction can mean for his children’s futures.
