Peter Harper lecture, Bioenergy Seminar and Ballarat Permaculture happenings

Don't miss the unique opportunity to hear Peter Harper speak about Plants, Land and Carbon, and what role agriculture and land-use can play in decarbonising a fossil economy. Brought to Australia for lectures in Melbourne and Sydney by the British Council, we are fortunate to host Peter at the Hepburn Primary School Hall on Saturday, April 16th at 7:30pm. Book with us by email or phone 5348 3636.
