Making changes for a better environment and quality of life
Leading permaculture teacher and designer, Rosemary Morrow, takes us through the processes she employed when she decided to downsize and choose a new home to move into. Instead of building new, she found a property that was ripe for retrofitting, and worked with professionals to make the necessary changes to make a ‘good home forever’.
Before deciding on changing living arrangements there are some important factors to consider, and Rowe guides the reader through a process to help make those decisions. Whether to move, build or stay where you are (and retrofit).
When Rowe moved from her ‘one acre of paradise’ to a smaller suburban property, she retrofitted her home to make it more energy efficient, safer, more comfortable, productive and easier to maintain. She shares her journey and outlines how she uses permaculture thinking for a wholistic home and property design. Your sure to pick up tips that could save you $000’s.
