Bek Stiegler went pretty much went from the average consumer (supermarket shopping, buying stuff she didn’t need, buying the cheapest and not caring where it came from etc) to growing pretty much all her own food (except meat and dairy), reusing and recycling, and being an extremely conscious consumer. She lives in Melbourne on a 750m² suburban block.
She writes about her own sustainable living journey over at Bek’s Backyard, a popular gardening and lifestyle blog.
During the show we talk about how she went from a barren backyard to building a fruitful and abundant suburban food farm! She loves fruit trees and eating fruit that is in season. If there is a glut she preserves via dehydration or water bath.
Her passion and enthusiasm about growing her own food is clearly evident as you listen to the episode. Please thank Bek for sharing her story and journey with us all.
