Take a sneak peek inside Pip Issue #30…
We look at how easy and rewarding it is to grow Cucurbits (pumpkins, squash, cucumbers, melons and zucchinis) at home.
Explore the mysterious creatures – worms that is – that turn our green waste into a power pack of microbial- and nutrient-rich castings; essential to both soil and plant health.
Looking every bit a strange creature from the deep, sea urchins are a seafood delicacy. But not only are they good for you and breeding in abundance, they’re playing a significant role in our underwater ecosystems. We find out more.
With the summer months upon us, now’s the time to look at how to turn the food you have growing in your garden into refreshing cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks. We bring you some delicious cocktail (and cocktail!) recipes.
We revisit owner builders Adam Hickman and Sian Richards, who we first met in Issue #6 of Pip. After tiny home living for several years, they set out to blend open-plan communal living with soft edges, natural materials and exquisite attention to detail in their new sustainable home.
We’ve known for decades our transport choices are impacting the health of the planet and its inhabitants. We discover where are we at right now in terms of EV ownership in Australia.
We explore the common traits of the communities in the world with the longest-living populations and how we can apply these practices to our own lives.
When we think about fire preparation, our first thoughts are usually about cleaning up around the house. But as we head towards what’s tipped to be a particularly hot summer, there’s plenty we can learn from people who have survived catastrophic bushfires.
We meet with environmental artist Liz Walker, who after years coveting a better way of life, has found the home, time and space to do just that.
