Sometimes we will have something in Australia – yet our main focus in Australia is building an ecovillage – see founders project: www.balancedearth.org.au

I’m writing to say thank you for all opportunities that Bello Bamboo gave me to meet great people in Bali, and Thailand. Thanks for the tours, and workshops which were very useful to earn experience working with bamboo in different areas.
