Where are all the Bindarri posts?

Just a quick update to let you know we are still here. Our posting has slowed down as our key members have been focusing on Bindarri’s Garden Project.

We are building websites for Friends of the Earth Australia and Beyond Zero Emissions, as well as a new mapping project.

Sometimes it is more important to work for change rather than blog about it…

Remember that you can add blog posts to Bindarri. If you would like to join the team to post with us, let us know.
