REPLY:: I have a great deal of experience working as a gardening and
permaculture teacher with prison inmates and also with "at risk" youth, all
of it quite successful. While I'm not at present involved in such work, I'd
be interested in keeping in touch. I'm sure we can't divert funds for me to
attend a conference in Australia, but I am very open to mutually appropriate
ways for me to contribute if the project desires.
