Thank you Juliet,
It's lovely to work alongside wonderful people like Kenny, Jeff and Lyndsay. Collaboration of like minded hearts and hands makes the work part of these things relatively easy and a delight to be a part of creating something really special!
I saw you have posted on FB etc, thank you, yes the more posts the merrier!
I'd love to catch up when you're over here next year, send me an email of where you're going to be. That'd be fun. tania@nurtureinnature.com.au
Thanks again so much.

Hello Tanya

Thanks for letting me know about this event. It sounds like you have worked hard to put it together. Would you like the event shared more widely via Facebook, etc.? 

Sadly I'm not working in Australia at that time of year (back July 2016) - but I sincerely hope the conference is a success. 

Best wishes
