We made another book: The Art of Frugal Hedonism: A Guide to Spending Less While Enjoying Everything More!
“The Art of Frugal Hedonism is an absolute joy. It is good-natured not pious, humane not self-righteous, and a guide to ethical living that makes the impossible possible. I am happy to make this my bible.”
~ Christos Tsiolkas, author of The Slap
Annie Raser-Rowland used to make art but became suspicious that the natural world was frequently outdoing her, and with greater finesse. She took up making gardens for beauty, then realised that she could feed herself at the same time. These days she is a graduate of horticulture and permaculture certificates, has worked at several Melbourne nurseries, performed urban edible garden design and spent a spell in Tanzania working on permaculture systems. As a full-blown plant nerd with a passion for questioning modern food equations, she started investigating wild and other undervalued foods, was recruited by the rich pleasures of foraging and gleaning, and hasn’t stopped learning since.
Adam Grubb runs an urban permaculture design, landscaping and education business, Very Edible Gardens, and also co-founded EnergyBulletin.net (now Resilience.org) and the Permablitz movement. He co-hosted Greening the Apocalypse on Melbourne’s Triple R. He has been running edible weed walks since 2006.
