Whether you want to learn how to grow tomatoes, bake bread, make your own soap and preserve fruit, or just be inspired to slow down and live more sustainably, the bestseller Down to Earth will be your guide.

'I was pulled into simple living before I knew what it was. It crept up on me using the smallest of steps and didn't reveal its true beauty and real power until I was totally hooked. I was searching for a way to live well while spending very little money. What I found was a way of life that also gave me independence, opportunity and freedom.'

There is no simple solution when you ask, ‘How can I change my life to create a resilient and secure future?’ But there are steps you can take to create a haven for you and your loved ones. Rhonda Hetzel's book, Down to Earth, was originally written for those who wanted to slow down and simplify life. Now, with the events of 2020 forcing change on all of us, it is also a valuable guide for creating a home that will provide safety and comfort during the uncertain years ahead.

Rhonda gently encourages readers to find the pleasure and meaning in a simpler life, sharing all the practical information she has gathered on her own journey.
