I have been visiting this amazing event since 2007 when I first discovered its existence. I wouldn’t miss it for the world, and the kids always come along with me. Ben really enjoys the day, especially the food. Probably because he has hollow legs! You can see what we got up to in previous years by following through to these links – SLF 2008, SLF 2009, SLF 2010, SLF 2011, SLF 2012, and SLF 2013. That’s a whole lot of fun right there!
Anyway, here is the really cool news. This is the first year that I am presenting! Not just once, but twice and two different subjects to boot.
My first appearance is on Saturday 15th Feb @ 1700 – 1800 at Federation Square. Greg Foyster (author of Changing Gears) invited me to be part of a panel, during the Big Weekend. Here is the blurb;
LIVING SIMPLY IN THE CITY
Greg Foyster, author of the book Changing Gears, chairs this panel featuring Gavin Webber (greeningofgavin.com), Kat Lavers (Cultivating Community) and Mike Hill (WestWyck). You can find more details at this link.
Sounds like lots of fun, doesn’t it. I am looking forward to meeting the other panel members and sharing my experience and opinion.
The second appearance is on Tuesday 18th Feb @ 1900 – 2015 at the Ivanhoe Library. Here is the skinny;
