Living the Good Life – Linda Cockburn

Living the Good Life – Linda Cockburn

I picked this up in Borders in Brighton when I gleefully discovered their ‘ecology’ section (including recycling, consumerism, environment etc). It’s about an Australian suburban family who decided to see if they can go 6 months without spending anything (apart from taxes etc) – grow their own food, collect rainwater, use solar panels for electricity, bike everywhere instead of taking the car… It’s a really good read and as well as being a realistic look into self sufficiency (including all the ups and downs), it’s also got plenty of factual information.

Definitely worth a read – thought you might be interested in this Dibnah, if so I’m happy to play library :)
