Whole Larder Love | Grow. Gather. Hunt. Cook


Whole Larder Love, a book by Australian DIY-er Rohan Anderson.

Author Rohan Anderson came out with his first how-to manual and cookbook last year, Whole Larder Love, based on his blog in which he documents his modern-day hunting and gathering lifestyle through skillful photography and personal experiences in sustainability and green living.  Anderson now lives entirely off the land with his family just outside the historical rural town of Ballarat in Australia.

DIY Tutorial: Hanging String-Bound Kokedama Moss Balls


photo credit: String Gardens 


A few weeks back I posted an article titled Modern & Eco-Friendly Indoor Gardens in which I talked about string gardens by Fedor van der Valk.  As promised, here is a tutorial on how to make your own hanging string-bound Kokedama moss balls.

Kokedama is an old Japanese botanic art form which has been lately revived.   The following tutorial with accompanying instructional photos are courtesy of Sicilian-born Amsterdam-based designer Aura Scaringi from  Miss Moussetache.  A portfolio of her work can be found at Mimimou; an urban exploration, graphic design and illustration studio.
