Special Thanks:

This site was inspired by my Permaculture teachers, Bill Mollison, Geoff Lawton and Greg Knibbs. It was a privilege to  study the PDC (Permaculture Design Certificate) with them September-October 2008  at Trinity College, Melbourne University. They really demonstrated what a difference one person’s work can make in the world.

Special thanks to Merian Ellis, the journalist who interviewed me about my garden project, and got me started in collating all the material to put this site together.




Why is there advertising on this site?

This site is created in wordpress.com, a free blog service which has been adapted to a web site format with some creative tinkering! The provider has the right to put any advertising they wish on the site, but by volunteering for AdWords advertising, there is some control over the advertising content – the only advertising category selected for this site is "Green" to try keep with the theme of the site, so supposedly only advertising which fits this character should appear here.
