SEW Smart Empowered Women on The Gold Coast
SEW stands for Smart Empowered Women and is an open group meeting each Monday fortnight between 10 and 12 at Gold Coast's Permaculture's Urban Farm at 270 Ferry Rd.
Women of all ages can attend and children are welcomed.
Today saw the first meeting for the new year and the topics for discussion were microbusiness and blogging.
So many women would like to start a business but are not sure how to go about it.
The informed discussion at today's meeting imparted both practical knowledge and confidance.
Plans of action were clarified and contact details exchanged.
Blogging was also discussed and even the more experienced in this field learned something new from fellow group members.
Future topics for discussion at the SEW Group include
28/1 Biodynamics and Moon Planting.
11/2 The Yeskandoo Campaign to eliminate plastic usage and upcycling (the process of converting waste or useless products into products of environmental value).
25/2 Non-Violent Communication or Compassionate Communication
11/3 Cooking without gluten
25/3 Home made Beauty Products
8/4 Soap making and Herbal Recipes
22/4 Herbs and Worms
6/5 Survival Skills- Knots and Camp Cooking
20/5 Healthy Cleaning Products
3/6 Probiotics & Fermenting - Yoghurt & Sauerkrauts
The atmosphere under the mango tree at Gold Coast Permaculture is relaxed and friendly and with a welcoming cup of herbal tea from the garden and delicious treats brought by all, SEW meetings are an enjoyable way to connect and learn.
