Rebuilding Vanuatu's forestry

When Cyclone Pam blew in to Vanuatu on March 13 it set back development of this proud, independent island nation. Villagers are very dependent on agriculture and forestry to raise small amounts of cash. The trees that they grow in their gardens supply nuts and fruit, but also occasional sales of timber that are used for local construction or to pay secondary school fees. Australian forestry has had a long tradition of working with Vanuatu, and this appeal is being supported by the Institute of Foresters of Australia and Foresters Without Borders.

How the internet began

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a healthy young wife by the name of Dorothy.

Jamax nominated in the 2014 Telstra Australian Business Awards

Jamax Forest Solutions has been nominated in the prestigious 2014 Telstra Australian Business Awards and is entered in the Micro Business category. Not sure who by but thank you. Mind you, after the 20-30 hours it took to complete the entry, if I ever find ...out, I might turn around and nominate their business next year.
