Sydney welcomes David

Unknown
True to his comments in ‘Why I haven’t been flying‘ David went on his way by train to a three week stint teaching courses and giving talks in the great city of Sydney. According to an intercepted wire transmission, he got out this morning to “visit chooks and birds, forage some pepinos, view a few banana bunches between rain” in an unconfirmed location. Nice. He observed that “from Wagga up, it looks like they have lots of rain, especially around Goulburn, flooding on the plains.” We could do with some of that here.

In between foraging on some tropical fruits and sending home weather reports, no doubt he will tell us some stories from a far away up north. He will be teaching in two PDCs, two public talks, an intensive two day Farm Forestry course and a two day Advanced Principles course (see Events at the top for the details).
