Dear members and friends of CANWin
Can you help us push the SUSTAINABILITY barrow for 2010?
We are inviting you, our members and friends, to help us make a bright spectacle at the Australia Day Parade in Berrima on Tuesday 26 January 2010 at 12pm as part of CANWin’s “Wheelbarrow Flotilla.”
Marching behind the rainbow CANWin banner, we have a vision of a gentle citizenry of CANWinners and friends pushing barrows full of all the good things each of us does in our community. Can you imagine what a positive statement that will make? Our entry in the 2009 Tulip Time Parade made a wonderful gentle and effective statement and to top it off won the prize for best float!
All you need is your wheelbarrow, decorated with whatever you feel is an appropriate way to show your passion. As a starting point some suggested decorations/themes are biodiversity, transition, food gardens, grow and eat local, renewable energy, water saving, mulch, re-use/re-cycle, compost, bush tucker, slow food, preserves, seed saving, permaculture, transport, water tanks, solar cells.
To help organise, we need RSVPs as soon as possible so we can plan the event. Be creative and think of others who would like to join in. Forward this invitation to a few friends with a personal message AND we can swell our numbers.
Twenty wheelbarrows would be great, fifty would make an unforgettable impact!
We think CANWin can make this Australia Day Parade the best one ever and really hope you are equally inspired and can join us there.
