This little square (15cm by 15cm) is about to become part of something BIG! It is being shipped to Aberaeron, Wales. Mrs Snail of Happiness is making a masterpiece to mark the completion of her advanced studies in permaculture. My contribution involves tackling the big issue of domestic animals and the way we can ensure they co exist with indigenous flora and fauna. I have talked about this issue here and I love domestic animals and I love our wildlife . Yes it is a big issue but by being creative, intelligent and loving, we can work it out. It will never be perfect but as long as we follow the snails example of keeping slowly moving forward, I believe we will continue to turn towards a sustainable future. I have also enclosed a handmade card depicting a ship setting off under the furious Australian sun (it is 110 degrees Fahrenheit at the moment) and some other surprises. Good luck with your studies Jan!
