The year ahead…

It’s a big line up with lots of promise, but these are some of the topics that we’ll be covering at Ordinary-2-Extraordinary (O-2-E) this year. Underpinning each of our topics is our decision to use Permaculture Principles, ethics and sustainable living practices as a basis for our decision making and planning for the future.

It would be great if you could join us and hopefully be inspired to start your own sustainable journey.
