Welcome to what I hope will be a useful resource for those who want to learn more about growing food, agro-forestry, building with natural materials, alternative technology, renewable energy, wild food foraging, medicinal herbs, mushroom cultivation, keeping animals, preserving food, making wines, beers and ciders, distillation of spirits and essential oils, social enterprise, co-operatives, community-living, art therapy, sound-healing, shamanism, traditional crafts and anything else relating to a healthy, harmonious and self-sufficient lifestyle.
I am by-no-means an expert in any of the above, but I have been exploring these topics for many years, and practising some of them. I wanted to create this blog in order to collect all the information in one place, to share it with others, and to build a reference hub that can serve as a dropbox for documents, photos, links, videos and whatever else might seem useful in the pursuit of this particular knowledge and skill set.
I welcome any input from those who feel they have something worth sharing. In the future this blog will hopefully become a more accessible point of contact and information for a much wider virtual community.
