BACK TO NA­TURE

Down-to-earth liv­ing in Milk­wood by Kirsten Bradley and Nick Ri­tar

The Simple Things - - FRESH - Mur­doch Books)

Bradley and Ri­tar live an en­vi­able life on an Aus­tralian home­stead, grow­ing veg­eta­bles, milk­ing goats and for­ag­ing for wild food. In this in­spir­ing, en­cour­ag­ing book they show how even city dwellers can learn to live a more nat­u­ral wa. They sug­gest start­ing with “one sim­ple, sin­gle, doable thing”, be it grow­ing toma­toes on a win­dowsill, search­ing for seaweed on a beach trip, or grow­ing bee-friendly flow­ers and then grad­u­ally adding in some­thing new un­til your world is slowly trans­formed. There are recipes to rel­ish, wine to make and drink and a lovely sec­tion on honey that will make you want to in­stantly set up a bee­hive. (
