Igloos - interested?

There are massive changes afoot in Pallara, our home suburb. Many horticulturists who once grew crops in igloos will leave the district soon, when their acreage is bought and developed for housing. The igloos can be purchased from the farmers prior to their departure and will improve growing success. If you're interested in finding out more about available infrastructure, give Lawrie a call on 0439 044 450.See More
