MOVIE NIGHT PLANETARY

7pm Friday 6 November at Creative Waikato, 131 Alexandra St

$10 per ticket but free for all the hardworking volunteers in the environment sector.

Come along to this awe inspiring movie. You will be challenged and inspired.

PLANETARY asks us to rethink who we really are, to reconsider our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us - to remember that: we are PLANETARY. In a stunning visual exploration, the film interweaves imagery from NASA Apollo missions with visions of the Milky Way, Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas, and the cacophonous sounds of downtown Tokyo and Manhattan, with intimate interviews from renowned experts including astronauts Ron Garan and Mae Jemison , celebrated environmentalist Bill McKibben, National Book Award winner Barry Lopez, to anthropologist Wade Davis, and Head of the Tibetan Buddhist Kagyu school. They shed new light on the ways our worldview is profoundly affecting life on our planet.

Just Employment Waist High Planters FOR SALE

These boxes are the work of men engaged in Just Employment, an aspect of Anglican Action’s Re integration Programme that journeys beside men reintegrating back into the community. Employment is an essential element of this.

Just Employment has developed several initiatives to create employment. These waist high planters are one such initiative.

They are made predominately from untreated pellets which can be picked up free around the city. Each planter box is slightly different from another as they are not mass produced. Planters can vary in height and can be ordered at a height suitable for you.

The cost of the planter is in the labour, as we pay an hourly rate, with a small transport component. Our commitment is to increase the hourly rate we pay to the living wage within two years.

A purchase of one of these planters is a Just purchase for; the environment, paid employment, a tax contribution and a better hourly rate.

About Waikato Women’s Refuge Te Whakaruruhau

Waikato Women’s Refuge is New Zealand’s largest refuge and the only refuge in the country that operates a 24/7 support service. In Hamilton city alone, our staff assist between 85-100 women and their children every week. Waikato Women’s Refuge’s sixth safe house was moved onto it's site last year. It was generously donated by Braemar Hospital and is the former Salvation Army's The Nest home. We have had some lovely support by trades people and sponsors in the community to get the house reconfigured to how it is now and need some further support from our community and friends to get this completed before Christmas.

Thank you for your support for the refuge that you have given us to date, we really do appreciate your kindness. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more.
