Gift Giving at Christmas
Mark and I were given this book by participants from a past Permaculture Design Course. It's full of great ideas for living simply, perfect for someone starting out on the path of sustainability. My daughter from Melbourne was asking all about growing her own food and it prompted me to get the book out.
I said to Mark that I thought it was a really good and practical book and that we should buy it for everyone for Christmas, and he said why buy it for people who would never look at it . ( he actually said something about me being a hippy and people rolling their eyes and throwing the book into a corner) and I said well maybe we should buy (or make) presents this year that we think are worthwhile and add something positive to the world and then find people who would appreciate them, whoever 'they' may be. Just a thought!
