Have a fabulous weekend 💘
Here’s a little watercolour diagram I made showing the steps of how to safely water boil for preserving food in a glass jar! Learnt this on the Orleans @workawayinfo and been practicing my cartooning for the past few weeks to get it right! ✍️ This little guide should help me keep my greens from going rancid for a half year . . . . . . #preservation #foodpreservation #homestead #canning #preservingfood #cartoondiagram #sustainableliving #homemade #lifehack #lifehacks #foodtips #ecotips #reducefoodwaste #plasticfree #reducereuserecycle #recycle #kitchenhacks #forage #foragers #zerowaste #ecofriendly #moneysavinghack #workaway
All welcome to the Community Garden tomorrow Sunday 21st from 11-1. We're at 5 North Drive, SW16 1RN. We'll be taking part in the national Big Butterfly Count from @butterflyconservation at midday.

We'll be gardening and volcano-kettling too of course, and prepping for our big #NationalParkCity Festival day on 28th July.

Forget a day; can you imagine even an hour without electricity in scorching summers or freezing winters? 😳 Today we are so dependant on electronics that power cuts can create havoc to our daily routines. So be it your office deliverables, heap of clothes to be washed, some charge to your about-to-die phone or even to cook; its scary to think of a power-less life. Most of us leave the mains ON or keep the appliances in standby mode. Turning the mains off can save an incredible 5% of power and it will also keep your appliances safe from any major fluctuations. So make sure you turn off all the not-in-use appliances, unwanted lights, fans and air conditioners as a habit. Pull the plugs down and save for an electrifying tomorrow! 🔌 #saveelectricity #saveenergy #energyconservation #envrionment #awareness #savings #electronics #greentip #gogreen #sustainableliving #power #wayoflife #makeitahabit #reduce #recycle #globalchallenge #earth #future #unitofbeing #uob

A house made from cork: take a look around the RIBA Stirling Prize-shortlisted home. It might be one of the most sustainable houses built in the modern age. FT architecture critic Edwin Heathcote speaks to architects Matthew Barnett Howland, Dido Milne and Oliver Wilton. “It’s a real cradle to cradle material, just going back into the soil when it’s finished,” Barnett Howland says.

e n e r g y f l o w s w h e r e y o u r i n t e n t i o n g o e s 🌿 . What is your intention for your home? A place for family to gather? A personal sanctuary from the outside world? A safe place for you to feel creative and express yourself? . A common practise with my clients is for them to come up with an intention for their home. . Write it down, read it often, tape it onto your bathroom mirror. . This simple practise will change the vibration of your current situation and the law of attraction will begin to shift the way you feel about your space. . Remember, your home is a vision board of what you want to manifest in your life. . . . . #manifest #abundance #fengshui #fengshuitips #lawofattraction #thesecret #intentionalliving #sustainable #sustainableliving #ecofriendlyliving #plasticfree #bohoonthelowlow #howiboho #howwedwell #mydomaine #apartmenttherapy #anthrohome #anthropologie #showmeyourboho #bohoonthelowlow #organizedhome #organized #simpleandstill #artofslowliving #slowliving

Eloise and I went to @cellardoorfest yesterday and got silly VERY quickly. Never in my life has $30 bought me so much wine, cheese, and enthusiastic human connection 😍 (Also our outfits matched not only each other but also the bohemian rugs and decor and we were in aesthetic heaven 🙌) In the spirit of #plasticfreejuly Eloise packed what was essentially a Hermione’s Handbag of coconut bowls, napkins, finger food skewers, teaspoons etc to ensure we wouldn’t have to miss out on any of the countless yummies on offer! 🥂 We also received a wine glass on arrival 🥳 and we avoided the degradable* water cups by using our wine glasses for water as well. It was hard not to accumulate a bunch of eagerly proffered flyers and business cards as we sipped and supped the night away, but we thanked the vendors and photographed the info instead. Aaaand as everyone was herded reluctantly towards the exits, we managed to rescue a bunch of abandoned cheese, olive oil, dukkah, relishes, crackers and bread from the dining tables! No drunken meal was ever more satisfying 🙌 . . *Degradable in the right conditions, which they won’t receive if they’re put in a normal bin. 😡 Degradable, biodegradable & compostable: know the difference!
| HOT BITES | Wild salmon burgers, yellow paprika, soy sauce mayo and grapefruit on lettuce “buns”. . . What do you eat on a hot summer day? Me not that much actually, but I love savory flavors; especially fresh zingy Asian ones. . Of course there are a shit load of salads you can make with seasonal fruit and veggies. But in summer -especially when active- I feel like I can have some fish now and then. These burgers I made with canned wild salmon, maybe it’s a guilty pleasure, but I craved that over a piece of fresh salmon. It’s not that cheap but you’ll use less so in the end it’s cheaper then getting just a big piece of fish. Which is tasty as well but, ok I felt like this and mayo.🤷🏻‍♀️😅 Good thing is that you can make these in advance and it’s super easy to put this on the table in no time. Also only one pan needed; because you don’t wanna heat up your house even more ..and def not use the oven! . With summer you automatically crave freshness rather then heavy dishes, so listen to those craves! Most summer fruit and veg are designed to cool you down and hydrate. ⚡️👌 . Citrus is the best way to ad that zingy sour flavor to your meal, it doesn’t acidify* your condition (*I don’t know if that’s good translated, please let me know if it’s not the word). It is actually a fleeting acid you can breath out true your lungs, while vinegar can’t and can make you acidified. . Bitter flavors are also cleansing. Just as the fresh horseradish in put in the burger. . But enough nerdnes, this shit is just really tasty.

The wild and spicy Alexander seed (Smyrnium olusatrum), a wild food which grows on cliff tops and in seaside hedgerows. The plant was introduced to the UK by the Romans, who called it the ‘pot herb of Alexandria’. The seeds make a great local alternative to black pepper so a great immune booster and digestive support. #beautyisournature #wildfood #foodforfree #alexanders #forager #chemicalfree #organic #sustainableliving #jurassiccoast
