My little family and I are on the cover of the current (Feb/Mar 2012) issue of Grass Roots magazine. I love Grass Roots - I used to read it back when I was building my house, for inspiration. Then somehow I lost track of the mag and hadn't read it for years. But this year it's found me again, and I'm eating up all the great stories as fast as I can - so many tips and ideas for living sustainably, sufficiently and so on. I've realised there's a great community out there of people who can already do all the things I'm trying to learn to do, and that I can access them via the mag. So thanks, Grass Roots, for coming back into my life :) And thanks, for publishing such a lovely story too.
The story is a nice run down of all that is self-sufficient about the way Paula, Jesse and I live. You can download and read it here. (PDF file: 9652.5K)
