This is the story of a family wanting to live a simpler life and a farm built with the involvement of the local community. The Farm at Byron Bay has since become a diverse community of its own, made up of organic growers, chefs, bakers – all connected by the common values of simplicity, sustainability and farm-fresh food.
The Farm Community is for anyone who craves connection: connection with where food comes from and connection with community. Alongside tales of the people who have helped to make The Farm what it is today, you will find simple steps to living more sustainably, whether in the city, the suburbs or the countryside. The book includes rewarding projects like making your own compost bucket, companion planting and drying flowers, as well as recipes collected from across The Farm’s community, celebrating a shared love of growing and cooking.
