Permaculture Oppurtunities

So we may be stuck in Tatura but things are looking up in the next couple of weeks. We've been offered a spot in a Permaculture Design Certificate Course, something we have been trying to do since we've been traveling. Here's an ad that I wrote for them explaining a bit of what a PDC is. If you are reading from VIC consider joining us!

  1. Hope you got a discount on the course fee by writing this for them! Class is expensive. What happened with the visa situation?
