DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Thursday -

NEXT in the se­ries fea­tur­ing former Fairfax jour­nal­ists strug­gling to live off the land on min­i­mal in­come: Matthew Evans. He’s had an epiphany about his four hectares at Cygnet in Tas­ma­nia — it’s send­ing him broke. So he’s bought 28 hectares, 10 min­utes away. He is sad (the pigs have moved there), yet happy (it has some great ap­ples, a fish­ing hole he could fill with trout if only it didn’t have an out­let, along with trees ‘‘ we might be able to mill up into us­able planks and build stuff’’). Evans and his cheese mate, Nick, have also opened a shop, at some cost, in Ho­bart’s Sala­manca Mar­ket.
