Hello, and thanks for visiting! I’m Nat and together with my husband Jared, we’re helming our ship through some seriously bonkers times the best we can. We’re raising twins, and building a life in south east Tasmania. We’re using a melting pot of permaculture principles, radical homemaking ideas, Retrosuburbia concepts, granny skills, big waste free goals, a good dash of frugal hedonism and old school gut instinct… all in the name of creating something that matters.
Out in the world…
Out in the world I take photos for awesome people, check out my portfolio here.
I help out with Richmond Village Good Neighbour Network, check it out if you’re in our hood.
In 2018 I founded Our Coal Valley which has evolved it into being an evergreen guide to vineyards and producers in our region.
Sometimes I wonder over to my other Instagram account Ode to Sunday. It’s an ode to quiet time, Sundays and nature’s craftsmanship.
Recently my website unceremoniously died. So I’ve seized the moment to (re)start writing a blog. Jotting some thoughts and leaving some note for others. The overarching theme is how we’re responding to the climate emergency, which is pretty much an extension to my Instagram ramblings. And with in that I’m keen to explore my fascination with habits and rituals. The small daily ones, the seasonally connected ones and the big annual festive ones. Questioning the bad and stale ones, and developing new ones that feel meaningful for us in our time. Currently there’s a reading list, and some initial thoughts. Otherwise click here and stay tuned. What a hoot!
