Hi, I’m Carolyn. This is where I try not to bore you as I talk a little about myself. I am a dog-loving, tree-hugging, urban farmer ‘greeny’ that is trying to figure out, how to tread lightly on this earth. I am a mom of two and work as a software developer on most days. I have two rescue dogs and two rescue felines. And I will probably sneak some posts in about them too, somewhere.
Where did it all start?
I started this blog to share my journey into zero waste, minimalism, tiny home living and growing and connecting with like-minded people.
The Organic Gypsy was created about 10 years ago. I became sick and was desperately looking for alternative ways to heal. So, I went from eating meat three times a day to drinking green juices overnight.
I was learning, for the first time, how to eat and what food really is. Learning what natural foods looked like. Incorporating more nutrients into my diet was quite a challenge. I tried so many different recipes and almost half of them were absolutely fails. They were horrid and had to throw the food away. Some recipes stuck and I would really like to share those with you.
I must just be clear in saying that I am by no means a 100% raw foodist. But let’s just say I aim to be very high-raw.
With that all said, I started a blog then, to track my journey. I also experimented with a few things. Like having no fridge. Going zero waste. Living in a minute tiny home. Our home is a little bigger now though.
What is the blog about?
So, I am hoping to dive right into those topics in this blog and just create a place where I can keep track and record our experience with this lifestyle. Things like:
- how to go zero waste,
- how to grow things,
- plant-based recipes,
- tiny home living,
I do hope you find these interesting too and if you are on the same journey or would like to know more, let’s connect and hang out.
