Sunday April 22nd marks the end of our fourth year of energy-positive-living in the Greeny Flat. It also happens to be the 48th annual, international celebration of Earth Day which, this year, is focused on ending plastic pollution.

So, in what has quickly become our tradition, we will be holding our 4th annual Earth Day Party on Sunday April 22nd from 4 to 7pm at the Greeny Flat, 16a Queen St, Mittagong.

Everyone is welcome… as usual we will be cooking pizzas so feel free to bring your favourite pizza ingredient, something to drink and perhaps a little finger food to share (but not any plastic please). Cintia and I hope to see you here to help us celebrate our wonderful house and fine community of friends.

Speaking of Cintia and I… we would also like to invite you to an art exhibition which will include some of our work. As you may know, Cintia is a ceramicist who works at the Sturt Pottery Centre. She and nine of her fellow potters will be having their regular Celebrating Clay exhibition next week at the BDAS Gallery in Bowral (not at Sturt) and they’ve invited me to include some photographs. Here’s a bit from their promotional email.

10 ceramic artists, 10 different expressions of this versatile material called clay: from functional ware to sculptures and everything in between.

Come and join us in Celebrating Clay 2018, an exhibition by Sturt Pottery Group.

Also on the walls see a beautiful photograph exhibition of Southern Highlands local life by Andy Lemann.

From 12th -17th April 2018 at Bowral Art Gallery (BDAS – 1 Short St, Bowral). 10am-4pm.

Official opening: Saturday 14th April at 2pm.
