Rowe Morrow & Hannah Moloney will lead a permaculture teacher training in Ballarat Victoria, from Saturday evening Nov 17 to Friday November 23, 2018.

Rowe will also then be attending the Yandoit Shindig and PEG gathering on the 24th & 25th November.

Most of the regular permaculture teacher training events on the permaculture calendar are in NSW so we’re very pleased to create this event in VICTORIA.
