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.

Whilst I present at a majority of the workshops listed below alongside Joanne, I have added in the dates of workshops conducted by my company Green Living Australia. We have enlisted the help of workshop specific professionals, such as EJ in our Soap and Cosmetic class, to give you further insight and knowledge in your area of interest.

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.
      Valerie

  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.
