Dean cares so much about building community and caring for the planet, that he weaves it into all that he does and all that he is.  I have a huge amount of respect for Dean, for his skills, for his abilities and for his commitment to the cause.  All that and he is a really warm likeable fellow too.  Well done Dean, keep up the good work.

Dean, thank you for the daily tips, eco house photos, food and stories, all of which I show at the work morning tea table. Also a big thank you for putting me on to the best chooks in Australia! Keep on alerting people’s consciousness to the good and bad around us!”

I have attended and enjoyed two of Green Dean's workshops, which were held in a very welcoming and relaxed environment. Dean's presentation style was clear and concise, and his passion for sustainability and urban permaculture is inspiring and contagious.”
~ Liz Zubevich, Landscape Architect

Green Dean does wonderful work encouraging others to learn and do many positive things for the environment, and to broaden our understanding of many aspects of becoming more sustainable. He is a wealth of knowledge. Having attended the workshop he held on Survival I was very impressed with his in-depth knowledge on a wide range of subjects. He involves others in the community who have skills as well. Dean's place is always very welcoming, making for a wholesome experience, which is so good for the soul as well as the intellect. Building bonds of friendship with a diverse group of people is a lot of fun and very rewarding. The world is a much richer place due to his expertise and coordination skills. Great work Dean and keep it up.”
