A great array of memories are flashing back to us here, at Mirawara, as our Earth Core program is coming to an end. So many adventures filled with joy and laughter, stories of renewal and hope, teachings that will keep flourishing in our hearts for a more resilient and sustainable future. We would like to thank all the people that supported our vision and made our Earth Core program possible through Pick My Project this year. Also, an enormous thanks to the Victorian Government for their great funding initiative and to all the people that came on our adventures this year. We would also like to thank all the mentors and volunteers that helped create such a rich experience for us all. Mirawara will continue to work hard to secure funding so that our programs can be accessible to all.
As our way to thank you for your great support, we are organising a free event at Leanganook (Mt Alexander) on Sunday 29th March 2020. The event will start at 10am and finish around 8pm. The timeline for the day is as follow:
