Join us for an afternoon and evening of festivities in the park as we launch Sally Dillon’s campaign to turn Coorparoo Green!
Come along to the Pocket Community Garden in the heart of Coorparoo Ward for a family-friendly celebration of everything that our neighbourhood has to offer. Featuring live music and performances and loads of activities and workshops for all ages, the event will have something for all ages.
We’ll be joined by Greens Councillor Jonathan Sri; this year’s Federal candidate for Griffith, Max Chandler-Mather; and community leader Amy MacMahon.
Arrive hungry: our stalls will be selling family-friendly food, desserts, drinks and snacks (yes to GF and vegan) as well as plants, crafts, cakes and jams. Pack your favourite picnic set and blanket or chairs to dine in eco-style (paper plates available).
We will have accessible toilets on site, but please note the venue is grassed.
To join our workshops bring a white T-shirt or calico bag to print on, and an old T-shirt to cut up for bag-making.
This event is taking place on the unceded sovereign lands of the Jagera, Yugarapul and Turrbal peoples. Norman Creek is an important link in the unbroken connection of Aboriginal people to this area — one of the main camps, or townships, of the traditional owners was at the mouth of the creek, and the waterway itself was a valuable source of food, timber, and materials for weaving baskets and nets. The Pocket is near the site of one of the main fishing weirs.
