Creating a self sufficient lifestyle is not as hard as people make out, in fact it is really simple you don’t have to go big just a simple pot with tomato 🍅 plant will do.
For us though we are doing self sufficient on a larger scale due to our own isolation which is our choice, a growing family and a need for delicious food that hasn’t had chemicals poured all over them.
Our gardens need to be full of The microorganisms that increase the soils nutrient levels which in turn increases our lovely produces delicious nutritional values. We don’t have water from towns so we don’t have the chlorine in the water 💦 this ensures that we know exactly what we are eating and enjoying.
We now have two tall vegetable gardens, two short vegetable gardens and then the extra ones we’ve made from old bridge girders. In these we have a mix of compost we’ve made ourselves out of decomposed bails of hay, chook poo layers, cow poo layers, hay and river dirt from well the river of cause. This mix grows us plenty of our favourite fruits and vegetables 🥒 that we enjoy, preserve and share with our neighbours and friends. What we don’t eat and share gets put into our little honey stall for people to pay what they feel it’s worth to them.
We find these arrangements really satisfying and we have the added benefits of having our children interested in growing, cooking and sharing.
We will share pictures from time to time of our growing gardens, chickens, food and of cause our yoga and Honey products that we are making as a family and hope you feel inspired to start a little bit of self sufficiency, yoga and healthy living for yourself and your family.
If you just wish to live vicariously through us you can sponsor a bee hive, buy a plant, help raise funds for more gardens, or enjoy donating to the chooks food bill.
Enjoy the fun with us on the journey of The Yoga Hippy, Honey man, self sufficient lifestyle and fabulous nutritional food that we share as a family with our four fabulous children.
Sponsor a fruit tree
Every tree produces hundreds of fruit, they produce oxygen for our environment which freshens our air and the taste AMAZING. When you pay to sponsor a tree we place a green ribbon with your name on a branch to show your love and support for the Bee-Lotus life.
Help get more gardens
By helping with the purchase of more raised garden, we are able to plant more veggies which means happy healthy people. With each garden we get through your support we paint your name on the side to show our gratitude and appreciation for your support.
Sponsor a chicken
Just one chicken will help to arreate the soil in your gardens, keep bugs under control and produce an egg a day. Can you imagine what a fresh egg looks like? the yolk is bright orange/yellow, the white is white not cream and the chicken is fat and healthy. By buying a chicken for the farm you give this chicken a long happy life, great food ( they get the veggie scraps) and you allow people to get great, fresh eggs. Each chicken that is brought gets the name of its sponsor as constant respect for your support.

Did you know just one plant can highly increase your families nutritional intact, can you imagine 6 different veggie varieties and how these will feed your family? By adding a small contribution you are helping to increase awareness of home grown versus mass produced production and helping us and those around us enjoy great value, nutritionally perfect produce.
