Equip yourself with vital skills necessary for sustainable living and peak oil. During our seminars you will gather knowledge from a couple who have provided most of their own meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, herbs, condiments, bread and dairy produce for over 25 years and are keen to share their experience in soil creation, seed saving, moon planting, rainwater harvesting, animal husbandry and energy efficient building with you!
