‘My Less is More story is a packet of seeds! At 53, I am only just discovering the wonder and joy of seeds: planting tiny earth jewels in dark soil, watching over them, covering them, watering them, new shoots bravely emerging, planting them outside. And then, wow-o-wow, they become edible plants and beautiful flowers – for the bees, for our family and for our friends who come to our table. No plastic, no shopping: earth, sun, water, joy, love. It's a step in my journey towards wholeness, in my practical action to be the change I can be... in small ways.’
