At Rockdale City Council’s first ever Environmental and Sustainability Forum I was wowed by Tanya Ha’s presentation. I was familiar with some of her work, having read her book Greeniology which I agree is the greenies’ bible.

Greeniology is well written, jam-packed full of practical facts and had led me to expect Tanya to be a greenie on the bookish side. I wasn’t expecting to be charmed, inspired, empowered and entertained as I was by her presentation.
