Making a biz from your permie passions and wicking bed action

Last month we got to chat to Ben from Ben’s Bees and he shared with us his beginnings and how he’s grown his business.. Permablitz Collective superstar Hermann also put together a great article on wicking beds (based on the writings of the wicking bed inventor), and we’ve also teamed up with the team at Permaculture Victoria to present the Fair Food documentary as part of the upcoming Sustainable Living Festival!
