My name is Sarah and in 2017 I moved from Hackney, London to rural Sussex with my husband, three children and our dog. We had lived in London for over twenty years, but we were finding the city increasingly polluted, crowded and stressful. The dream was for a country cottage with a lovely garden where we would raise chickens, grow vegetables and the children could play outside. We wanted to live more sustainably, spend more time with nature and generally live a greener happier life.
Did we achieve this? Mainly, yes, but it hasn’t been without its challenges. Some of which are documented in my posts – escaping chickens, bolting rocket and children who still quite like their screens, even in the countryside.
If you are thinking of moving to the country, you want to start growing vegetables or get yourself and your children closer to nature or maybe you just want to live a little more sustainably, please join me. A good post to start with is this one https://greenfamilyproject.com/2019/05/17/escape-to-the-country-what-you-should-consider-before-ditching-your-city-life-for-the-rural-dream/
