About this book

If you want to grow your own food, become more self-sufficient, zero waste or eco-friendly, or even go fully off-grid, Liz Zorab is the perfect guide to help you explore the world of green living and permaculture. Grounded is the story of her gardening journey: from bare field to bountiful feast; from poor soil to fertile abundance; from rookie errors to successful sustainability. Liz and her husband, Mr J, transformed a tired 0.8-acre field into a fertile homestead that provides 80% of their food and drink with enough left over to stock a community veggie box scheme.

An inspiring blend of practical tips and ideas with personal narrative and a good smattering of humour, Grounded will show you how to:
- Fill your garden without emptying your pocket
- Be creative with resources
- Make the most of the space you have
- Achieve more without exhausting yourself
- Enjoy the process as much as the results

This is a tale of courage and imagination that will inspire you to grow your own productive paradise and live your dreams.

Media reviews

"An invaluable resource"
– Huw Richards

"A lovely description of making a new life through restoring health to soil and body"
– Charles Dowding

"What a beautiful book this is; honest, uplifting, practical, and full of inspiring projects, which I cannot wait to try in our own back garden. The author's 'can-do' attitude, her openness, and her willingness to learn and adapt as she goes along, shine throughout. Most of all, I love the way Liz and her husband have gone the extra mile to work with nature. The results, on so many levels, are remarkable."
– Brigit Strawbridge Howard, author of Dancing with Bees

"I first started following Liz on her excellent YouTube Channel several years ago due to her 'down to earth' way of presenting gardening and homesteading knowledge/experienced based content. Liz's book Grounded is a first-hand story about self-sufficiency that also collates literally thousands of tips and practical examples of food gardening and self-reliance in such a way that it is a must-have learning tool for beginner through to advanced. Honestly, get the book and get into it!"
– Mark Valencia, founder of the YouTube Channel and Blog Self Sufficient Me

"Grounded is a refreshingly honest and entertaining read that weaves together personal experience and practical food-gardening tips. It's a modern, yet down-to-earth, guidebook for aspiring smallholders on par with John Seymour's The Fat of the Land."
– Tanya Anderson, author of A Woman's Garden and the popular gardening and beauty personality behind Lovely Greens
