I always try to be prepared when doing a zero waste shop. It all starts with making a list, then choosing all the different bags and containers I will need in order to make sure I don't use any unnecessary packaging. #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastehome #packagefree #cottonbag #organiccotton #brownbag #reuse #refill #bulk #bringyourown #byo #sustainability #sustainableliving #ecoliving

The rain is on its way so I need to pick the strawberries before they get saturated.🍓🍓🍓

The next project we tackle on our block is this slope. This is the view out of our bedroom window and as wonderful as all this rain has been, it's been troubling to watch much of it run straight down this slope to the empty paddock beyond, taking all the topsoil and nutrients with it. We have to find a way of keeping those nutrients on our block and using that water flow more efficiently. So we are thinking about swales or terraces, and researching good ground cover and understorey crops. Eventually this will be our 'orchard' (with other plants as ground cover and understorey) but right now it's about protecting and improving the soil here and slowing down the water flow. We are thinking salt bush, and maybe some olive trees? Drought tolerant, and they grow well here. Would love people's thoughts and experiences though. . . . #permaculture #organic #growyourown #growyourownfood #sustainableliving #avonvalleypermaculture #toodyay #permaculturedesign #swales #orchard #waterwise #offgrid #organic #organicgardening #rainwater #conserve #closedloopsystems #fruittrees
