Sustainable Living A Beginning
Sustainable living has been my dream and now slowly step by step I am becoming part of this new way of living.
Am I doing it right? I really don't know but I am attempting to make my home simpler and grow my own food.
Above is a corner of my living area, everything of natural materials including the floor which is the house's wooden floorboards.
Some of my paintings can be seen. I now am using paint made from clay.
From my studio window I look down on my food forest. Lots of mistakes here but also some great successes. Slowly more and more of my food is coming from my own gardening efforts.
On the other side of my yard the old clothes line allows washing to dry in the wind and sun.
No shower wall for in the bathroom but plants catch excess water and keep the air clean and fresh.
So much still to do but it does feel good to be attempting to find new simple ways in harmony with our planet.
