How to start up a Simple Living Group

Pauline from Happy Retiree's Kitchen recently asked me if I could do a post on how to start up a Simple Living Group. I did write a post some time ago but I can't find it now so will do a new one and hopefully label it well enough so that I can unearth it down the track :-) This is how our Simple Living Toowoomba group began.......

Lambs, Winter Skin Fixes and Permaculture

I have been to two workshops this past week. The first one was at Racheal and Rick's Birdsong Market Garden where we put together some winter skin fixes which was a lot of fun. I will show you the photos later. Firstly though I had to show you the little lambs that we had a look at after the workshop.

A Dark and Dismal Week

After weeks of cold mornings followed by blue skies and sunny days we have had a week of dark and dismal weather as there was quite a bit of rain falling in the east most of which missed us apart from a most unusual winter storm on Monday which hit about one minute after I thought it was time to bring the washing in. Oops! Too late!

Making soap with lard


Obviously rendering pig fat is a fascinating subject judging by the number of comments on my last post :-) Well....here is what I did with some of the end product and I am reasonably happy with my first lard 'experiment' and learned something new during the process.

Finally...we have lard!

At long last I have ticked another box on my 'To Do One Day' list! I have been wanting to render lard or tallow for ages and reading the new eBook from Farmer Liz gave me the motivation I needed to finally give it a try.
