The Sustainable Living Expo are looking for a presenter to hold a preserving workshop (1 hour) at our expo to compliment the other workshops and guest speakers we will have there on the day. Find more details in our chat area.

For non members here's the details sound good.

Further details about the expo as below:
Brimbank Sustainable Living Expo

Sustainable Living Festival Event
Westvale Community Centre
45 Kings Road, St Albans
Melway map 13 reference F11

Come along to our Sustainable Living Expo and be empowered to take action at home. This event will showcase how to reduce your waste going to landfill, how to conserve energy and water at home and how to plant, cultivate and cook your own healthy produce. Learn from the experts including Vasili from Vasili’s Garden, local community gardeners, sustainability industry experts and local government staff. Come and see a community garden in full swing, there will be art activities and planting activities for the kids, guided walks around the near-by native grasslands and information sessions on growing well-being gardens. Learn how a community garden works, be inspired to grow your own food and reduce your impact on the environment or simply join us for a BBQ lunch. This is free event and is open to the whole community. No bookings required just come along and join in the fun.

No you're not that bad Kathleen, but I tell you what my family is... even though I tell them, it's just 'it happened in the eastern states, then it must be close by' and the eastern states are almost half the size of the country... :lol:
