Hello, I'm Karla...

I have dreamt of living a self-sufficient lifestyle since my eyes were opened to the health issues facing humanity and the planet in my early 20’s, whilst studying a health and environmental degree at university. 

It’s such a romantic notion to grow your own food, make your own products and live in harmony with the Earth.

But where to begin? And how, when you were raised in a world of packaged convenience?

It wasn’t so long ago that supermarkets, single-use packaging etc didn’t exist… many of our ancestors lived self sufficiently, simply through necessity and not knowing another option.

But what if that information wasn’t passed down? Or you never had access to it? How do we rediscover that knowledge?

That’s the journey I’ve been on – researching and experimenting for YEARS.

I’m on the hunt to find the simplest, most practical, efficient and effective natural solutions to help me leave a lighter footprint on the Earth.

It’s been a journey of overwhelm, trial and error, success and failure, and most importantly – determination & commitment.

I’m developing The Earth Girl Lifestyle as a record of my journey, beliefs, knowledge and solutions, that endeavour to help me to live in a manner that helps return balance and respect to the Earth via my everyday actions.

I have an ever inquiring mind that is constantly asking ‘how’ and ‘why’ and I’ve personally found the more I know, the less I know. It’s a continual journey of evolution which is why I love to invest my time and money in further education, researching, experimenting and developing simple solutions.

Writing the Earth Girl Lifestyle is an evolutionary love affair that I’m honoured to share with the world. It’s been a work in progress for many years and I’m hoping by sharing my knowledge I can help to minimise the extreme overwhelm that can be inevitable when you’re open to change and looking for solutions, but don’t know where to start or how to progress.

I hope by sharing my journey with you, you’ll be able to save yourself a heap of time by learning from my lessons and gaining from my knowledge.

We have the ability to create a world future generations will be proud of.

It starts with us. Inspiring seeds of change by simply living a simpler, healthier and more sustainable life.

And so it is.

If you’d like to find out more about me, I have a dedicated space on the internet at www.karlahooper.com to be Authentically Me. I share stories of how my life has unfolded since handing it over to something bigger than me in my early 20’s, stating ‘your will, not mine – how do you want me to be or service?’. And of my outback adventures of chasing camels around outback Australia with the goal of using them as a form of sustainable transportation. And give an insight into the magical world of being a lightworker. My life has been a wild ride to say the least! And I’m so happy to be able to share it with you.
