Welcome to the crazy busy world of transforming a once completely treeless two acre block in Murrumbateman, outside Canberra, into a productive, lush, healthy world.
Hubby and I have four beautiful children - Miss 9, Miss 7 and twin 4yo boys - who are our inspiration for trying to live a simpler, healthier life. We try (and sometimes fail) growing our own fruit, veggies, herbs, reducing chemicals in our life, and cooking/baking/preserving. We also dabble in beekeeping, chook raising, sun oven cooking, home brewing, soap making, solar generation and upskilling husband to perform odd reno jobs around the place.
After recently completing a Permaculture Design Certificate, we are aiming to retrofit our block to become as self-reliant as possible in an increasingly changing and volatile world.
