About us

Come hang out in our garden for a bit – grab a cuppa, take a seat on an upturned pot, and grab a few snack-size ideas to take home. In small steps, you can work towards growing, making and closing the loop on your food.

We are in a southern cool temperate part of Victoria in Australia, and our experience reflects the climate here. We have lived on acreage, in the suburbs, and in a proverbial shoebox, but the principals are the same – grow it, make it, and close the loop on your waste and resources wherever you can.

No matter where you live, you can take a lot of the practical experience we’ve built and enjoy your journey; avoiding some of the botches and muck-ups we’ve already made for you, and making the most of the things we have found give you big bang for buck, so to speak.

There are lots of great products and jiggers (look out for ‘Goodies‘) to make your journey quicker when time slips away from you, and we will share what has worked well for us, but you can also go the slower road, and make do with much less.  

Stories about us
