‘This book may change your life, and your community.’
~ Costa Georgiadis

It is with much excitement that we can introduce our first book, MILKWOOD. It’s full of skills to get you inspired and started on living a handmade, home-grown life.

The skills that we learn bind our lives together. Do you want to learn how to grow your own vegetables? 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.

We invite you to make these skills your own. Designed to be read with a pot of tea by your elbow and a notebook beside you, Milkwood draws on rich seams of knowledge and experience to bring the essence of these five subjects to you in a friendly, let’s-get-going format.

All copies bought from us will be signed by the authors.
