The skills that we learn bind our lives together. Do you want to know how to grow your own food? Or how to keep bees? How to forage for edible seaweed along the shoreline, or wild greens down by the stream? Maybe you're curious about growing mushrooms or how to grow the perfect tomato. 

You're invited to make these skills your own. Designed to be read with a pot of tea by your elbow and a notebook beside you, Milkwood is all you need to start living a more home-grown life. From DIY projects to wild fermented recipes, the in-depth knowledge and hands-on instruction contained in these pages will have your whole family fascinated and inspired to get growing, keeping, cooking and making.

Milkwood is the name of Kirsten Bradley and Nick Ritar's first farm as well as their school where anyone can learn skills for down-to-earth living. Kirsten, Nick and a team of educators offer courses on topics contained in this book as well as permaculture design, natural building and much more. Kirsten and Nick live on a small regenerative farm near Daylesford, where many things from the sprouted grain they feed their chickens to ingredients that make up dinner is homegrown.

Not an ordinary food book

So pleased I got this book. My husband, "I don't want to look at your foodie book..." didn't want to put it down - "this is a really good book, " :)

A pretty book, but only really useful if you grow tomatoes, keep bees, live by the coast, etc.

This is a lovely, hefty book. It is filled with information and pictures. I bought it for my partner and it was enjoyable to flick through, however we did find that it was quite specific to the topics listed: tomatoes, beekeeping and seaweed. Admittedly those topics were identified in the description, but I had hoped there would be a few more bits on 'down-to-earth' living or permaculture that someone who doesn't keep bees/have access to seaweed could enjoy.
