“FEMIVORE – A homemaker who blends feminism and environmentalism and isn’t afraid to can her own tomatoes.
A femivore wants to provide for her family from her own backyard, while reducing her carbon footprint.” Peggy Orenstein, The New York Times
Over the past 18 months, I have become a backyard activist. I live in a rural agricultural area where, whilst homemaking is quite normal, reducing one’s carbon footprint is not a high priority for many.
I watched The Story Of Stuff. I read blogs, many good, inspiring blogs.
personal journey of change. Ever one to enjoy a good holiday, I chose the journey.
I joined our family up to a community garden. I started an organic food collective with a good friend. I began a facebook page called The Whole Shebang, which is all about food – the growing, preserving, cooking, eating & learning about food; the community & land that our foods come from; the people who grow it; appreciating food in a way that doesn’t impact on others, or on the Earth.
