material. Broken into two easy going parts the morning session runs from 10:30am till 12:30 noon
after which there will be a one hour lunch break. Hungry potters are encouraged to refuel at
Solscape’s very own Conscious Cafe and enjoy the incredible plant based cuisine on offer. The
workshop resumes at 1:30pm and concludes at 3:30pm with everyone completing their own
original handmade tea bowls.

Thank you for being a part of an incredible year!

 

We just want to take this opportunity to send our love and gratitude to all who shared this amazing season with us here at Solscape. There were so many unforgettable moments paired with stunning sunny days.

 

Some of the highlights were the events held at the Conscious Kitchen with weekly movie and live music nights to compliment the deliciously moreish meals our chefs created. We also had the pleasure of hosting a number of beautiful weddings and events. Our Permaculture Design Certificate had such an amazing group of passionate, down to earth individuals. All inspiring us with their knowledge and creative minds. Just a few of this years milestones.

 

The people we meet and the experiences we have here at Solscape are such a huge part of the memories we hold on to. So thank you all for sharing these moments with us and we hope to see you again soon!

 

Film Screening ‘Blue’ brought to you by Karioi Maunga – Friday 20th April

By | Allgemein, Events | No Comments

Join us at The Conscious Kitchen at Solscape for the film screening of ‘Blue’ and pizza night – Friday 20th April.

 

Blue the Film screening sponsored by Karioi Maunga ki te Moana to shine some awareness on the challenges facing our seabirds and other marine life. BLUE is a beautiful film that profiles six ‘marine guardians.’ Still only available in NZ and Australia film festivals, we are very lucky to have a chance to bring this film to our Karioi community. Please check out the website to learn more – bluethefilm.org/

BLUE is the story our generation need to hear. The industrialization that has occurred in the oceans over the last century, mirrors the events that triggered mass extinctions on land. Industrial scale fishing, habitat destruction, species loss and pollution have placed the ocean in peril. The very nature of the sea is being irretrievably altered. BLUE is a provocative journey into the ocean realm, witnessing this critical moment in time when the marine world is on a precipice.

Bring a blanket! Delicious vegan pizzas, hot drinks and desserts will be available from 5:30pm from Conscious Kitchen- Solscape, Raglan. Check out www.karioimaunga.co.nz or get in touch with bexie.towle@arocha.org to find out more about how you can help support seabirds, contribute to microplastic surveys and get involved in Raglan!
