|Friends, Associates and Supporters of Very Edible Gardens|
Winsome Constance Kindness Trust
Philip Wollen was once a majorly headhunted corporate CEO, now he and his wife Trix are tireless campaigners for animal rights. Amongst their many projects through the Winsome Contance Kindness Trust, they own and operate the office building Kindness House in Brunswick St, Fitzroy, where VEG are grateful to have our Fitzroy office. You can read a great article in The Age about Phil and Trix. (Incidently the same journalist Katherine Kizilos has written articles about VEG's Dan Palmer and permablitz and VEG's Adam Grubb and edible weeds.)
An online Australian bookstore specialising in sustainability books, including organic gardening and permaculture. Currently 50 cents from every book sale is invested into sustainability initiatives.
