Issue 29 Flipbook

The winter solstice is behind us, spring is on the way and Pip’s Issue 29 is packed full of inspiration and information to start the new season on the best foot. As well as debunking the myths about soil preparation and showing how everyone can grow their own food no matter where you live, we’ll show you how to forage and prepare seaweed, and visit a group of Indigenous women in Central Victoria building connections through cooking native food. We’ll take you on a tour of a sustainable forever home built using recycled materials, spell out everything you need to consider when designing a chicken coop at your place and remind you that taking the time to nurture yourself is just as important as caring for our planet. You’ll learn about plants that can feed you when your spring garden is bare, you’ll be inspired by a thriving co-op that grew out of necessity and you just might even be inspired to up your offal game after learning about the sustainable, ethical and cost-saving benefits of this highly nutritious food.
