About me

Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the world. My name is Holly and I’m a Kiwi who is currently living in Perth, Australia and on an Urban Homesteading journey to create a more sustainable lifestyle. I grew up on a coastal farm in Northland, New Zealand and my parents have always been pretty much self-sufficient. I currently have a suburban house in Perth, Australia and I have been converting more and more space into edible urban permaculture gardens. I have planted some young fruit trees over the last few years and we are currently converting our front yard to edible gardens.

I’m obsessed with growing my own food, purple veggies, tropical fruit, edible flowers, urban homesteading and I have recently completed a Permaculture Design Certificate. I have always dreamt of owning acreage and living a sustainable lifestyle. But for now, I am starting with what I have and learning as much as I can in between. Urban Homesteading can be so rewarding and being able to grow and preserve most of my own food on a suburban block is definitely achievable.

I am also really passionate about inspiring others that want to grow their own food and make sustainable changes to their lifestyle. Start today, whether that’s a small pot on the balcony, using a reusable coffee cup or turning part of your gardens edible. Small steps that you can grow and build on, and you will in turn, inspire others along the way.

Small and Slow Solutions – one of my favourite Permaculture Design Principles.

I would love for you to join me on my journey as I reduce plastic/ waste, learn to bake, preserve and grow epic permaculture gardens! Make sure you hit Subscribe.
