I wonder why I always smiled when I went into the garden?

A few summers ago my family undertook a locavore challenge here in Tasmania – focussing on living simply and eating wonderful local food. We grew as much meat, fruit and vegetables as we could, sold our surplus to by local fare, and set a goal of being grid-neutral by reducing our power usage and making the most of solar technologies.

At the time I blogged about the experience. I’m re-posting my musings on this new website as there were so many things  we learnt during that time (of which I need to remind myself!)… and I do like to have a stroll down memory lane every now and again… (the links below lead to each individual post)
