    i run a program called the "hands on learning project "

    i have yr 7-10 kids a day a week to do sustainable, hands on projects around their schools and local communities.

    we currently operate around darebin (inthe north of melb)and frankston (in the south)

    we are always looking for positive mentors for the students who have a bias towards sustainable living principles

    we are currently building a strawbale creative classroom and the front etrance gates of a school out of rammed earth in car tyres

    interested? then please email me on the address on the bottom of the page

    Is this only weekdays?

    I would be interested, but unfortunately I work Mon to Fri in the City.
