Great to meet you!
The Happy Rebel title was inspired by an article written by Alex Steffen in which he referred to optimism as a radical political act in the current climate. (Read the full article here http://www.worldchanging.com/archives/011102.html)
But who is the happy rebel? First and foremost, I’m a Mum to a beautiful one year old daughter (soon to be Mummy to another rug rat) and wife to a handsome and charming dark haired man. I’m also a Masters student studying sustainability and have a background in agriculture / food production, policy development, lobbying and advocacy for the agricultural sector.
I live in REMOTE Western Australia (our nearest city is nearly 900km away), where the temperature regularly soars and stays above 45degrees (that’s Celsius my friends).
I’m a passionate devotee to the pursuit of more sustainable lifestyles, a ‘wannabe’ gardener, adrenalin junkie, and have an irrational hatred / fear of shopping centres. (Perhaps that’s why I love the Buy Nothing New concept!) I’m also a lover of many great blogs which I can’t wait to share with you.
