While most Australians live in capital cities, at one time or another we all covet the charm and slower pace of country living. But if a tree change isn’t feasible for suburbanites, why not combine the best of both worlds at home?
My Suburban Farm is a gorgeous guide to bringing the rustic romance, craft aesthetic and home-grown joy of rural life into your very own suburban nook.
From the meditative delights of craft to the satisfaction of growing and cooking your veggies, this book celebrates everything handmade, home-grown and heart-warming.
Ainslee Costa, creator of the popular My Suburban Farm Instagram account, shares her tips and tricks on everything from candle-making to pottery, hunting for vintage wares to keeping chickens.
With My Suburban Farm you’ll learn to bring the simple pleasures of the country into any space.
