Pat Lowe, Backroom Press 2015. $26.95
Pat Lowe one of the founders of Environs Kimberley and general allround legend has published a new book, make sure you get a copy!
Take a journey into the micro-world of one of the most maligned creatures on the planet and discover the real story of termites. After years of keen observation in Western Australia’s Kimberley region, Pat Lowe shows that there is more to these industrious insects than their propensity to eat houses and furniture.
Termites are the earthworms of the tropics, providing nutrients to arid soils. They have been an important food for people and other animals throughout the centuries, and their nests have been used in many human endeavours. Our Friends the Termites will enlighten anyone who has travelled through northern Australia and wondered at the strange mounds that dot the landscape. It is a fascinating and delightful read for backyard naturalists, entomologists and the simply curious.
We have a new range of beautiful organic cotton tees available. The design features a whale tail and ‘gas-free kimberley!’ on the front, and a whale tail, ‘saving the nature of the Kimberley’ and our website on the back. These fitted tees come in mens and womens in a range of colours and sizes for just $30! Colours include red, green, blue, purple, pink and cream. Sizes are S, M, L and XL.
