The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary.
Now this blog isn’t intended to be about our marriage but the ten years of success we’ve had is a massive contributor to our lifestyle plans and choices.
If we hadn’t managed to make this connection then we wouldn’t have managed to create the jigsaw that is our ongoing greening quest.
When I was in the front garden wrestling with the hedge or the lawn pleading for assistance the man himself said,
Can’t we grow something useful?
And in many respects that’s how it all began!
When we moved in our house it had a paved square at the back and a grass square at the front.
Both intensely small and apparently limited.
Both without any purpose.
Both a bit of a nuisance.
Both low maintenance!
And we were both disinterested or disengaged with outdoor things.
Ten years on, from a foundation of zero knowledge and zero potential we’ve managed to utilise both the outdoor spaces and our own previously untapped potential to totally change how we live.
Now we’ve got bees, worms, chickens, an allotment. We make or harvest jam, honey, soap, clothing, briquettes, vegetables.
We avoid plastic, consumerism, meat, pollution, chemicals, waste.
We’re also learning, enjoying, engaging, sharing.
So in short it’s a day to celebrate!
Our homeschool journey one adventure at a time
Nerdy thoughts and musings
Be well, be edified and enjoy!
