A 'must' read for anyone considering moving to a land based project
on 23 July 2009
Rebecca's well researched book on the hows, whys, whats and wheres of different small holding and low carbon agricultural projects really looks under the hood of a number of appraoches- couples, communities and networks.
She looks not just at the practicalities of how to make a living using low input techniques but equally, if not much more importantly, she looks at the stresses, issues, and of course happiness that working in such a way places on individuals, relationships, communities, kids and looks at the different stages in life and what that means in this context.
Following extensive visits and corespondence with low carbon projects in the UK and France she draws up some very interesting examples and ideas.
A 'must' read for anyone looking to change their life-style. There's much more to a low carbon lifestyle than solar panels and vegetable patches.
Rebecca's book helps you look at the wider human issues involved. Wish I ahd read it before we made the leap, it would have helped us address so many of the issues we didn't even think about.
