A BENEFIT CONCERT FOR FOOD SECURITY IN ZIMBABWE

Dana has been singing alongside Australian rainforest activist John Seed since they blockaded a uranium mine together in 1986; they have shared numerous tours of the US, Canada, Australia and NZ. Their 1990 album “At Night the Howl at the Moon: Environmental Songs for Kids has become a movement classic, and there are now reports of people raised on this music as kids now playing it for their kids.

After singing a few of their old songs together, John will speak on deep ecology and the conservation of nature and Dana will regale us with songs from his new album as well as old favorites.

This show is a benefit for Chikukwa, an amazing food security project in Zimbabwe where, over a period of 22 years, permaculture has lifted a community of 7000 people from malnutrition to abundance. We will be screening a 20-minute clip of “The Chikukwa Project” by Aussie filmmakers Gillian and Terry Leahy as part of the show.

Thanks so much to Transition Bondi for hosting this event and to Chapel by the Sea for making us welcome to use their beautiful venue.

Suggested donation: $2 to $20 (all proceeds to Chikukwa)
