simple ways to tread lightly

About Me

Hi everyone, I’m Sarah.  I hope you love reading these blogs and, more importantly, find something useful or inspiring in them. Hubby, Chino and I live on a lifestyle block on the Hibiscus Coast in Auckland, New Zealand along with a big garden, sheep and chickens.

We built here in 2013 and since then I’ve tried various business ventures. Growing mushrooms to sell and more recently making DIY kits. While these didn’t work out for me I still love sharing the passion behind them – growing healthy food to cook with and using toxic free beauty and cleaning products, most of which are easy to make ourselves. I’m happy to share my recipes and tips as I hope it will inspire you to make small (or big!) changes to your daily life. We can easily feel overwhelmed and think we can’t make a difference: I could never grow my own food, change out a cleaning product, reduce waste at home or make a difference to a cause I care about.  We can – it starts with Just One Thing.
