Create a mindful material life.



Welcome to Grounded Life!

…all about skills & inspiration for the slow & simple, homegrown, locally sourced life. A life of creating more and consuming less.

I’m an urban homesteader who designs edible landscapes and regenerative farm systems, writes about local food, and teaches modern homesteading skills. I’m fascinated by where things come from and the connection between people and place. If this sounds like something you want more of in your life, follow along!

Hi, I’m Mari.
