a sustainable life


this whole move we made in the past year to our farm property was a major part of a decision to live a more sustainable lifestyle, so that's a topic we discuss around here quite a lot (often in the context of me being browbeaten for just acquiring a shiny new apple product). i also have a couple of friends who i discuss it with quite a lot - we send article links and have long email and in-person discussions about recycling, upcycling, thrifting, produce that's in season and local, the danish view on being green and ways in which communities are adjusting themselves to a more sustainable way of being. in that connection, we decided to take our conversation public and how better to do that than with a blog?

so i hereby give you a sustainable life. please come and join our conversation.

Love it! I'm heading over. I'm always thriving to be more sustainable which always feels like a major challenge in my community. Would love a place to discuss.
