I have just added a new link to my blogroll (at the side of the screen).
It is to a site about how to make stuff for yourself. This applies to things directly related to health – like food. It is also related to saving the planet – minimising energy expended in production and distribution of what we consume. It is full of practical and usually inexpensive things that you can make yourself (usually fairly easily).
The site is savvyhomemade.com. I think it is a really valuable resource.
