“So sad that it should come to this”, sung the dolphins as they left the Earth
– Douglas Adams
Yes it is a milestone today. It is the day of the last post at the Simple Green Frugal Co-op. My first post at the Co-op was on December 21st 2008, and I posted every single fortnight until today. That is a lot of thought provoking posts, and writing some of the deeper ones helped me get my own journey in perspective.

It was great while it lasted, but as Rhonda Hetzel, the founder of the site said;
“I started this blog way back in 2008 when accurate information about sustainable living, written by people who were actually doing it, was not commonly available. I’m happy to say we were one of the leaders in this type of blogging and now there are many fine blogs written by permaculturalists, biodynamic farmers and people living sustainably in their own homes. There is more information now and many more people living this way.”
There are so many great resources now, many great blogs and mainstream magazines in print. Simple living and variations on the theme seems to be in conversation everywhere.
So adieu old friend. A big thanks to Sharon and Rhonda for organising everything behind the scenes, and to all the wonderful writers who contributed along side of me. Every single post was inspiring, and special.
