Backyard Roots is on Tierra Soul Talk Radio

I recently had the chance¬†to talk to Krista Arias of Tierra Soul Urban Farm and Guesthouse about making Backyard Roots. If you ever thought about making a book, I’ll tell you how my project evolved and the interesting people I met along the way. Thank you so much Krista for your interest!

Check out Krista’s 4 week radio series in Lazy-Lady Living that covers permaculture, inspiring books and more. Her tagline sums it up pretty well I think: “Create a truly sustainable life without losing out on the good life.”¬†Tierra Soul Talk Radio-check it out!

PS I’ve never made Kombucha!

Tierra Soul Farmhouse Update


20130616_0061

 

I revisited Tierra Soul Farm Guesthouse when I was in Portland a week ago. It’s really inspiring to see how it’s grown (and the kids too.) I wrote about it in Backyard Roots because I thought it was such a great idea for urban farmers. Krista and David have such an eye for rustic, cool stuff it’s worth checking out just for the ideas! They’ve added a 1969 Barth Caravan that you can stay in that sleeps three and comes with a kitchen and bathroom. She also offers retreats, classes and farmer/artist residences. Check it out on your next trip to Portland.
