pip issue 7

Pip Issue 7 is our special chicken issue with all you need to know to raise your own backyard chooks; including a complete guide to chicken health care, breeding chickens and raising chickens for meat. We also have all our regular sections with articles on growing garlic for year round supply, pickling, Japanese fermenting, natural dyeing, electric vehicles, homeschooling as well as profiles of permaculture designed properties and a series on rare trade artisans.


Featuring some of the freshest new voices in the permaculture movement, including Grown and Gathered, Kat Lavers, Morag Gamble and Tabitha Bilaniwskyj-Zarins, Issue 7 is a feast for the eyes and the senses, all wrapped up behind a stunning illustration by Castlemaine artist Katherine Wheeler.
