The Foxes are on tour!

We are pleased to announce that we have been asked to host a talk on minimalism and frugality! This was a surprise to us but comes as a big opportunity for us to get our voices heard and engage with others in a new way.

We’ll be hanging around after the talk to answer questions and chat to everyone, so see you there!
