I'm really interested in the post-fire agro-ecology internship and the organic herbs internship. I completed my permaculture design certificate in November 2019 in Nimbin, Australia which was surrounded by raging bushfires at the time. For that reason, I'm interested in learning more about planning for fires and mitigating the effects on a post-fire farm.
I'd love to send you more information (including resume, work references, housing references). Can I do this via email?
