Due to record rainfall, we're behind in our mowing schedule. We're unable to use our mowers while the ground is saturated and the long grass takes longer to mow. Our crews are working hard to catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding.


Soap making, mindfulness and compassion workshop for carers

Celebrate Carer's Week by enjoying some creative time for you.

Soap making workshop: 10am -11:00am.

  • In this 1 hour workshop we demonstrate an easy step-by-step soap making process. You will get a sample soap to take home as well as instructions so you can try it for yourself at home.

Mindfulness and compassion workshop: 11:30am – 12:30pm

  • Compassion is a positive way of responding to our own suffering and that of others; and can enhance our wellbeing, happiness and social connections. Explore the relationship between mindfulness and compassion, and learn simple, effective practices for cultivating these qualities in daily life. 

You can join one or both sessions including a morning tea at 11am.

These workshops are for carers who provide unpaid care and support to family members or friends. 

Come along and connect with other carers and discover more about what your local neighbourhood house has to offer.
