Where Am I Going To Be?

I do a lot of travelling and you never know where you are going to find me, talking about sugar-free jam making, fermenting, cheesemaking, or just living a more simple life. I have had people ask me about my schedule and where I am going to be so I created this blog post to give you my schedule. I will pin this to the top of the blog and keep it updated for you.

I love to meet the people who read my blog, have my books and use the Green Living Australia product to improve their health while saving money. Have a look at where I am going to be and drop by and say hello if you get the chance.

  1. What is the cost of the 6th April Grafton ‘gut health & fermentation ‘ & is it a talk or workshop?
    How long is it?

    Also would u ever plan workshops in around Coffs Harbour or Bellingen ?

    1. Hi Deborah:
      I have updated the information on the Grafton events. The tickets ate $15.00. I have also updated the description. I would class it as a demonstration/talk. You get to sit back and relax while I make Kimchie. There will be samples of several ferments along the way as well.

  2. Do you have any pointers for writing articles?
    That’s where I always struggle as well as I simply end up looking empty display for
    long period of time.
