Growing local



There has been a lot of discussion about small homes - compact, sustainable, off grid, interesting design. Quite a few of us seem interested in the idea, if not the reality quite just yet!

I love the idea. I keep telling people I would be happy to live in a tent if I had my garden around it. A well built small home would be better!

We can but dream.

Add away. Post your thoughts, photos and links.

All of that and more guys! Off grid and small. I just need a big wardrobe, a bed, a kitchen and a laundry. Could all be fitted in one room.

Your productive garden should always dwarf your house. I'm not just interested in a much smaller house (I don't use half of mine now) but also going completely off-grid. Now that's freedom.

If it ever happens (for me) I would have a shed for the working stuff. So perhaps I am just separating my crud!

It is a dream but without dreams we don't have a life. So dream away!

The notion of having less krud appeals to this 'bowerbird' it would be a spiritual freeing.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
