  3. Whoua, your place seems to grow so well with vegetables growing, volunteers coming, construction going on, and lot of fun and beautiful nature !! I am in Thailand right now, planing to reach Australia at some point, and learning all the time more about permaculture. When I am back to Europe, I will definitly visit you, and put my hands in some soil and mud 🙂 Lots of love, Valerie
