DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) Living

I identified self sufficient living as a solution for leaving a lighter footprint on the Earth in the very early days.

There’s something so romantic about living off the land, making goods from scratch and living in a manner connected with nature.

But how, and where to start, when you’ve not grown up that way, and have only known packaged convenience? 

The answer is baby steps.

I’ve been on a Do it Yourself (DIY) journey for many years and have learnt a lot along the way.

I’ve now invested in various studies to become a formulator, ensuring professional knowledge and understanding.

I like to find the simplest, most effective, natural recipes, that work.

This is a lifelong love affair of evolution, experimentation, refinement and learning.

 

DIY Goals

I personally want to make as many things myself as possible, but defining the goal behind each DIY area helps keep things focused when it comes to materials and ingredients used in each project.

WHY DIY?

In the age of packaged convenience, fast fashion and being able to order anything you want online, the appeal of making things from scratch could be questioned. I’ve learnt profit is often prioritised above the planet, questionable ingredients can be used that can compromise health, and human convenience can come at a great cost to the environment.

Learning to make my own is not only wonderfully creative and rewarding, it’s also very connecting. It helps me learn how things are connected, what effect they have and how there’s a thin thread that links everything together.

DIY Solutions

I’ve been developing recipes and processes for making my own products for many years. It feels so good when I develop a method or formulation that can be replicated. But it’s always a team effort. Knowing where to go to learn is one of the biggest hurdles.

I'd love to teach you how

Ready to start living your own healthy and environmentally friendly lifestyle?

Want to save yourself a heap of time, energy and money by learning from someone who's further down the rabbit hole than you?

Great! Because I'd love to share all my knowledge and wisdom with you, either in-person or online.

I've designed the Earth Girl Education Series to teach people aspects of the Earth Girl Lifestyle in manageable, easy to take in chunks of information. Each topic is a building block that often interlink with other topics.

I'm teaching each topic in person to start and will then put the information online for all to enjoy.

The information and topics will continue to evolve over time as this is my life's work. Content will be updated as required so we can enjoy progressing together.

The goal is to build a lifestyle that future generations can be proud of, that's based on connection with nature and improving health.

In-Person Events

If you live in Perth, Western Australia, I'd love you to join me for an in-person workshop at my Alchemy Studio in Wundowie.

Workshops can be organised for 2-5 people, for $150 per person, by contacting me direct at karla@earthgirl.net.au

I'll be teaching each topic in person, until such time as I create the online course, and will then move on to teaching the next topic.

Topics currently being taught can be found below.
