PUBLIC INVITED TO BE PART OF THURSTON GARDENS 103RD CELEBRATIONS
The Na Koro Market aims to bring people to celebrate a historical event when Thurston Gardens in Suva celebrates its 103rd birthday on Sunday.
Market organiser Peter Sipeli said they expect a big turn out and great weather for people to have a great day of fun.
“It is also a safe space for families and children to run free in a manicured space that is perfect on great sunny summer days like this Sunday.” “People can come down and have a picnic in the park. We will have live music, food and range of awesome stuff to do,” he said.
Tessa Miller, and artist and founder of Sea Gems, is inspired to host a meditation session on “Your Best Self”. Entertainment includes live music by 4 Quarters, a market house band and four great games for children that would start at 10am to 2pm. “Sea Gems is inspired to bring this session to identify a small community of like-minded people that are interested in yoga, meditation and wellness around the Na Koro market.
“They will also run sessions to make circles made of natural leaves, plant fibres and other collectables from the garden into a sculpture that portrays human beings. “Sea Gems believes that the human kind is different but similar as it is part of the web of life.
“The centre of each circle is an opening like a window, it is in this form that we are the same and that is eternal, formless and unlabelled,” Ms Miller said. Diana Giesbrecht, an American, has been living in Fiji for the past 10 years is an enthusiast who teaches Salsa every Saturday at the Museum.
She invites people to dress in Bula for a lesson at the Market on Sunday.
