“Let’s say you could save money, inoculate yourself against many of the ills of modern life, live more lightly on the earth, and enjoy everything more on both the sensual and profound levels. Preposterous!”
So begins the popular book ‘The Art of Frugal Hedonism’ and we’re lucky to be joined by its author Annie Raser-Rowland for this special event. Annie will talk about the concept of the book and be joined by others sharing how they’re getting more out of life in ways you might not expect.
A fun, social forum event exploring the concept of frugal hedonism – spend less and live more!
This event aims to help people consider ways to simplify their life to reduce their environmental impact.
Annie Raser-Rowland used to make art but became suspicious that the natural world was frequently outdoing her, and with greater finesse. She took up making gardens for the sake of beauty but soon realised she could feed herself at the same time. Her passion for exploring alternative food equations has since led to studies in permaculture and horticulture, and co-authoring The Weed Forager’s Handbook: A Guide to Edible and Medicinal Weeds in Australia and The Art of Frugal Hedonism: A Guide to Spending Less While Enjoying Everything More.
