winter solstice community pizza & lantern night

On the day of the Winter Solstice, the earth's south pole it tilted away from the sun. The sun rises north of east, sets north of west and reaches 28 1/2 degrees above the horizon at noon. This is usually the shortest day of the year. Temperatures on our planet are not determined by the distance of the earth from the sun. Rather it is the angle of the sun's rays striking the earth at a steep angle. In winter, the sun is low in the sky and the rays strike the earth at a shallow angle. Winter Solstice marks the transition from the shortest day towards the warmer seasons.

To mark this occasion we will be holding a pizza night at the garden. We will also be decorating the garden with tea light candles and celebrating the evening with music. Please bring along your pizza dough and ingredients ready to cook in the outdoor oven. You may chose to bring food for you and your family, or food to share with others.

For more information please call Lee-Anne Benson on 0412 106 085 or email

Please RSVP by Wednesday 18th June.

A gold coin donation will be appreciated on the night.
