Hi, I'm Linda.

For many years I have been interested in making my own soap and using natural cleaning and personal products, sewing, herbs, aromatherapy, gardening and living a semi-self sufficient life.

In 2009 I completed a Permaculture Design Course which resulted in cementing my desire to improve our sustainable lifestyle and some firmer ideas on how to achieve the results I'm looking for.  I am a novice when it comes to permaculture and living sustainably but I'm committed to learning more and making changes that continue to take us forward.

I am a wife, and a mother of five children.  Two of my children have left home, one as an adult living her own life now and the other is beginning university.  We live in Victoria, Australia on 43 acres which is mainly bush.  I have found that parenting and the normal hustle and bustle of feeding, clothing and caring for my family slows down my plans but we still try to live by our principles.

I have grown to love blogging and would feel lost without the community that I've come to know and feel a part of.  I love that we are keeping a record which will one day be very special to my family.  I also hope that some people reading this blog may find ideas and inspiration and that together we can make our world a kinder, slower and gentler place to be.  This blog is also full of day to day family life and the things we get up to around here.

Thank you for your interest in our journey!
