Vogelmorn Travel Club

Weekly from Thursday 3rd September from 6.00 – 7.30pm, Vogelmorn Bowling Club

Share stories and pictures (and food)  
International tourism is in limbo (and hard to do sustainably in the climate crisis) so we thought we would dust off the photo album and reminisce about some past trips by adventurous locals.  

Grab a bite from Damascus Cafe or BYO food/drink and hear from a different traveller each Thursday. Contact ben.zwartz@gmail.com if you want to share your slideshow and stories!

If you haven’t already heard, Vogelmorn Community Group are now running their very own ‘community cafe’ out of the former Bowling Club kitchen! (The same location Damascus still use and The Green Cafe once did.)
Open Wednesday to Saturday 8:45am till 12:45pm.

Deep Ecology Day – Wellington: Facing Change Together

Sunday 22nd November, 10:00-17:30, Vogelmorn Bowling Club

We are alive at an extraordinary moment in time: It is a time of growing uncertainty, as climate catastrophe looms, the sixth mass extinction accelerates, and the wounds of inequality and inhumanity are laid bare. It is also a time of great possibility when creativity, courage, and collective action can change the political and ecological landscape for future generations. A time when many of us are seeking ways to reconnect to one another and to the living Earth, and to bring forth our particular gifts to contribute.
