The environment is something I have always been conscious of, however I’ve never really seriously thought about how big my carbon footprint is. Until now that is. Over the past few months I have been following the blog of a very good friend of mine, Rabid Little Hippy(aka Jessie). Jessie and her family are in the process of making a tree change to country Victoria and becoming as self sustainable as possible. Jessie has inspired me more than she knows, to take a serious look at my life and the impact it is having on the environment.
Most of the blogs and websites that I have come across are all about going green and self sustainability in cooler climates. Living in tropical North Queensland, the climate is dramatically different and poses some difficulty in growing produce. I have been doing a lot of research into growing in the tropics and have discovered it can be done, you just have to know what to grow when.
So here begins my journey into environmentally friendly living and self sustainability in a tropical environment.
