Thanks so much to everyone that has continued to support us as the new hosts of Five on Friday, we're so grateful and love reading through everyone's blogs that joins in :)
I'm very conscious that a lot of the participants are not homesteaders and probably grow bored of seeing what's happening around our here so this week I thought I'd mix it up a little and show you five of the magazines we love;
First and my personal favourite is Permaculture Magazine. I was given a few back issues of PM by a good friend a few years ago to give me some new inspiration on our allotment, that was before I really knew anything about permaculture. I noticed one of the articles was about a project that was within walking distance to me and the author, Graham Burnett, obviously lived in my hometown. I later went on to do my full Permaculture Design Course with Graham and am currently working on my Permaculture Diploma with him as my mentor. The editor of PM, Maddy Harland, is also somewhat of a personal idol for me as one of the people at the forefront of UK permaculture, an avid forest gardener and successful permaculture businesswoman.
|Kitchen Garden Magazine|
Kitchen Garden Magazine is another firm favourite of mine. I used to read Grow Your Own but it seemed to constantly be the same old thing and tended to advocate unsustainable practices. I bought Kitchen Garden on a whim one month to make a change and never looked back. There is consistently great information, far more articles on sustainable systems and the free seeds are always welcome to add to my seed addict collection.
Om Yoga Magazine
For those that have been following our blog you'll know that after the 30 Days of Yoga Challenge we hosted last November me and Carly have become quite hooked, especially Carly who has gone on to do a few other 30 day yoga camps. Om Yoga Magazine has plenty of tips and advice for yogis of all skill levels and helps to mix things up with new poses and techniques.
Green Parent Magazine is a great lesser known mag about raising kids consciously. It is packed with articles on Natural Parenting, things like baby wearing, breast feeding, cloth diapers etc. It has great information on home education, alternative parenting methods and their ethos really fits in with our beliefs, it's certainly well worth reading!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
