Event description

Description

The Kinma School Kitchen serves children lunches and snacks every week. The Kitchen is well used, well loved and now in need of a refurb to maintain its capacity to feed the school children. This is a fundraiser to help the school get there.

We are excited to share this film screening of 'Living the Change' with our local community, as the film is aligned with Kinma school values.

We are thrilled to include our own panel of local Northern Beaches advocates for a discussion after the film about the issues raised and how you can contribute to this culture of change, locally.

OUR SPECIAL GUESTS ARE:

Peter Rutherford
An ex-Kinma parent, Peter has been the Senior Eco Gardener at Kimbriki Eco House and Garden for more than 18 years. Peter is a social ecologist, horticulturist and educator with an extensive knowledge of soils and microbes and the sciences of composting and worm farming. With an infectious passion for sustainable living, Peter inspires both adults and children to live more sustainably.
Peter has taught in schools, co-designed and presented the EPA Earthworks and the Waste Board’s Healthy Gardens courses and has authored many articles, books and videos. Peter has been both guest and presenter on ABC’s popular Gardening Australia as well as appearing on various gardening and lifestyle television programs promoting the benefits of composting and worm farming.

Geraldene Dalby-Ball
Another ex-Kinma parent, Geraldene is the Founder of Ecological Consultants Australia, working with people and the environment to bring nature back into urban areas. She provides highly effective training on environmental management and community engagement, recognising the depth of knowledge from the Original Peoples of Australia and other areas. Geraldene facilitates experiences in nature, provides environmental reports and management plans, and works with teams of experts in design of spaces, with her speciality areas being wetlands and community / nature spaces. Geraldene also offers expert advice for developers and landscape architects.

Dr. Connie Harris, MB.BS
Also an ex-Kinma parent, Connie is a GP, and also a keen interest in the environment and bush regeneration. “I specialize in holistic medicine using traditional wisdom to heal and strengthen our immune responses. The natural environment together with a balanced lifestyle and nutritious food provide, in my opinion, the most powerful basic medicine. I graduated in medicine in Germany and also acquired knowledge in homeopathy, herbal and Chinese medicine during those years. I gained my Australian Medical Degree in 1995 and worked in several Sydney hospitals. I also had the pleasure of experiencing medicine in remote Australia with The Flying Doctor Service.”

Living The Change - Film Synopsis
Sometimes it can feel like the environmental, economic and social issues the world is currently facing are too big, too overwhelming, to be dealt with by individuals. Climate change, resource limits, economic downturn, social
disconnection. Surely these issues can only be properly managed by our governments?


Living the Change explores solutions to the global crises we face today – solutions any one of us can be part of.

Through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way.
Directors Jordan Osmond and Antoinette Wilson have brought together stories from their travels around New Zealand, along with interviews with experts able to explain how we come to be where we are today. From forest
gardens to composting toilets, community supported agriculture to timebanking,

Living the Change offers ways we can rethink our approach to how we live.
Each and every one of us has the power to create change. Living the Change sets out to inspire us to do
just that. There are so many exciting and important ideas and initiatives out there, so much hope and inspiration.
This film aims to generate discussion as widely and deeply as possible about how each of us views the future and our part in it.
