We are now the custodians of the land
These events are part of our ongoing partnership with Clean Up Australia Day Council. We hope you will attend and show your support for this collaboration in reverence for the ancient ancestors, custodians of the land and in reverence for our current culture and generations to come.
Caring for our planet is something sacred to us at Eartheart and what better way than to learn about the beautiful Indigenous Nyungar Culture of the land we inhabit and share whilst cleaning up our parks, waterways and reserves!
NEXT CLEAN UP DAY
Saturday 30th May – Mt Henry Bridge Reserve, Mt Pleasant
Each site we clean up has it's own unique Dreaming and we are honoured to come together in Ceremony and for our "Clean Up" of Pipe Head Dam at Helena Valley. Dr. Noel Nannup and other respected Nyungar elders will be attending as special guests and sharing the knowledge of the culture and stories of the Dreamtime.
We are also very blessed to have Julian Silburn, sound alchemist and sound healer joining us with his didgeridoo magic. Julian has long been called by the song of Australia and has spent over 20 years learning from Aboriginal Elders around the country.
To get to the Clean-Up site;
There are too many ways to describe! Mount Henry Bridge Reserve is easily accessed by the Canning Highway, Leach Highway and the Kwinana Freeway. There is plenty of parking under and around the bridge, look for the Eartheart signs, Marquee and team leaders wearing high-vis vests. If you require specific instructions contact Julia on 0447 416 677.
On the day;
Meet at 8.30am in the park to register. At 8:45 we come together for a quick group connection and briefing before breaking up into groups to clean up the reserve. At 10:00am we meet back at the Marquee for morning tea and refreshments before making our way to a sacred Nyungar site to listen to Dreamtime Storytelling. Afterwards, we commence the last clean-up session before finishing at 12:30pm.
All refuse will be sorted, as we collect it, into general rubbish, recycling & sharps. This will be left near the main bins which we have arranged for the Melville City Council to collect shortly after the day.
Please feel free to bring refreshments and morning tea to have a break in between cleaning up.
Hat and Sunscreen
Covered Shoes, for walking
Snorkeling gear if you wish to collect rubbish from around the river banks.
We recommend packing a picnic lunch, this a beautiful place to enjoy the park afterwards.
We will provide:
First Aid Kit
To help us cover our ongoing costs and to re-invest in equipment for future clean-up days and programs, we will be accepting heartfelt donations on the day.
We thank you for your generosity and spirit!
