40 Hour Jammin’

40 Hour Jammin LITE - 25 September 2 - 10pm

Due to the challenges of snap lockdowns, border closures and buyers’ hesitancy we have decided to cancel the 2 day 40 Hour Jammin event in September, and instead run a LITE version of the event on 25 September 2021 from 2pm at the Kendall Permaculture Farm with local artists.

This is a fundraising event for MND & ME Foundation (20%) and participating artists (60%). The remaining 20% goes towards running the event.

Tea, coffee, chai, cakes and a light dinner available by donation. Drinking water is also available. This is a smoke, alcohol and drug free event.

Tickets are a minimum donation of $40 (but it would be incredibly appreciated if you could contribute more according to your means, thank you!) If you have trouble paying this amount please send an email to info [at] permeco.org, we would like to support our community!
