Much of what I write about here falls under the broad categories of cooking, gardening and sewing and of course, the all-encompassing category of self-reliance.
The little things that I do every day contribute to my overall philosophy which is summed up in the byline of the blog – ‘A Simple, Sustainable Life’.
It is important that we should never underestimate the value of the little things that we can all do each and every day. However, sometimes we need to look beyond our own backyards and get involved on a larger scale.
8 days ago on 30th November several major Australian cities and regional centres saw significant numbers of school students, young people and adult supporters marching for their future – a future generated by renewable energy, not coal. I marched in support of these intelligent and articulate youngsters.
I am somewhere towards the rear of this photo which was taken today. There were many, more more out of view of the camera.
Thousands of people marched again today and will continue to do so until our state and Federal governments take serious action on climate change. The most pressing issue is to have the proposed Carmichael mine by Adani in the Gallilee Basin stopped.
There will be more events in the coming weeks.
All of the research shows that a clear majority of Australians support this action so please consider being involved. Stand up and be counted and let the politicians hear our collective voice.
Meanwhile, I have made another batch of strawberry jam. That is 8kg of strawberries made into jam.
