A Slice of Organic Life
Edited by Sheherazade Goldsmith
You don't have to live in the countryside, spend a lot of money, vote Green or be a vegetarian to be just a little bit more aware of our fragile environment, and to do your bit to lead a lifestyle that is thoughtful and working with nature rather than against it - this is the message imparted in 352 pages of ideas and suggestions.
The title describes the book perfectly - "slices" of organic life. You can take from the book what suits you - as many slices as you can handle, and there is always the opportunity to return and take another slice when you can manage it. It is beautifully illustrated with photography by Peter Anderson with subjects to suit someone living in an apartment through to those on a small lifestyle property or small holding.
I thought I would list a few of my favourite slices but I can't single any out - instead I ponder on which idea I will set in motion to change a daily habit that I know will ultimate simplify and enrich my life and that of my family.
