I am Amanda and this is my blog. I believe we can live beautifully and sustainably without buying expensive things like hybrid cars and solar panels (though I do think a range of tactics is essential in the fight against global warming and preserving life on earth). For that reason, I am interested in home gardens and food politics with a do-it-yourself mentality. Healthy living is a human right. Access to whole, natural food, clean air and water should not be controlled by corporate interest. Through this blog I hope to demonstrate the little things each of us can do to increase our freedom through healthier lifestyles and to highlight people’s struggles to achieve healthy living around the globe.
