My name is Mark and I love the environment and trying to live self sufficiently. I’ve combined my passions into a philosophy I call ecosuffciency. Basically living well with less and respecting the planet.

I’ve live on (and make my living from) on 2.5 acres in the English Lake District. I have a straw bale house, grow my own food and fuel, live off grid and really enjoy living a low impact lifestyle. I don’t expect everyone to live like this but for those that do or would like to I hope this site can pass on some of what has worked for me and what hasn’t.
