It’s not so unusual for people react to our $30/week budget with a certain amount of disbelief. Surely we must be eating boiled beans and potatos at least once a day. One of the objectives of this blog is to demonstrate that one can take totally reasonable steps towards a healthier, more sustainable, and radically less expensive diet. It’s always inspiring to find other people who are undertaking similar projects in order to push their boundaries and find more sustainable and economical ways of living.
Tracking back a recent comment from Little m, I found Brisbane-based Gustoso, where the two proprieters are challenging themselves to convert the lawn of their home into a garden that will, within a year, provide them will all of their fruits and vegetables.

Check out their site to track their progress and certainly pick up tips about sustainable gardening (not to mention recipes).
