The author met Julia at the Permaculture Research Institute in the mid-1990s, Julia was active in the NSW permaculture scene during that decade.
She later traveled in Brazil and has since settled there.
The author first met Julia when he interviewed her for the now defunct 'Green Connections' magazine.
The article made much of her as an inspirational young woman making her own path through life, inspired by permaculture.
