Futuresteading: The guide to a slower, simpler life

Weekend Life 21/08/2021

Well here we are once again finding ourselves in lockdown, having to appreciate the smaller things and look inward to find any joy or jobs or things to do while we’re at home.

It’s a tricky thing to get used to, particularly when it’s unexpected, but as you may remember from last year, there are little things that can make for a good day in lockdown, firstly: the chance to maybe go a bit slower.

Futuresteading is a brand new book that’s a practical and inspirational guide to living in a way that values tomorrow: a slower, simpler, steadier existence that is healthier for you, your home, and the environment.

Jade Miles and husband Charlie Showers run Black Barn Farm, a biodiverse orchard, nursery and workshop space for visitors to learn about permaculture, homesteading, as well as to pick-their-own from some of the 98 varieties of heritage fruit and berries in Victoria, Australia.
