I do a lot of travelling, and you never know where you will find me, talking about sugar-free jam-making, fermenting, cheesemaking, or just living a simpler life. People have asked me about my schedule and where I will 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.

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. Look where I will be, drop by, and say hello if you can.
