    Well done Zaia! A beautifully, clearly laid out article explaining what you and Tom do and offer. The icons are a great idea but don’t do what I did and click on them in the article as it doesn’t work. The icons are at the top right-hand side of the page!

      Thanks Maria, I am glad you like it! Indeed, the icons in the article itself have not been activated, but the icons at the top right hand of the page should go to the respective sites. Thanks again for having a look at the new site and a play around with it!

    Wow! to both of you! The excitement of moving ahead with such a project, I know, fills you with an amazing sense of empowerment, fulfillment, and wonder. I bet you pinch yourselves occasionally at what you have and can, achieve.
    Best of sustainability to you and your volunteers, and students.
    Cheers

    This is great to see. After doing my PDC with the both of, I know I learned a great deal about what to do with the food I planned to grow as well how to get it growing.

      Thanks Scott! This is what we are trying to convey with our new website, that we tie everything in together. A holistic approach to sustainability so to speak 😉
