While on the subject of living more sustainably and tree-changing, I remembered a particularly nice exmple.
Jane Campsie is a clever stylist and beauty writer (we used to work together at Marie Claire) who gave up her life in magazines to do a tree-change to a small village in Hampshire, England. Here she has created a lovely, textural home and an enviable garden, the feature of which is her vegie patch. Love her rustic potting shed, too.
Jane now has a florist and gift shop called The Garden Inn in the nearby town of Stockbridge.
