Swapping last year’s beachy blues for forest greens, the Knitting Nannas Against Gas have released their 2021 calendar – Earth Guardians.

The cover of last year’s calendar – the theme was all blue, beachy and bathing beauties – in 2021 they are the green queens on the look out for environmental vandals. Photo Tree Faerie.

On a rainy Saturday in October, the Nannas gathered at a property at Booerie Creek, near Lismore to pose for the calendar for a little Tree Faerie who snuck out of a hollow.

The Nannas dressed to send a loud and clear message – they are guarding the Earth and they are going to block the path of those who aren’t.

This is Nannas as you have never seen them before – stripped to their ‘essence’ to kiss 2020 good riddance.

As ever, for 365 days of the year the Knitting Nannas will be fighting to save the land, air and water for the kiddies.

The 2021 calendar will help us raise much-needed fighting funds (fill up our bickie jar) to make 2021 the year we end the plunder downunder.

Stocks are very limited – the Nannas have already sold out of their first run of this year’s calendar and are about to order their second.

The Nannas will have a stall at the Lismore Carboot market this Sunday. You can also order a calendar up until 5pm on Wednesday on their Facebook event page.
