Nurtured by Nature: Remembering a Back-to-the-Land Childhood

Liz Stuart remembers her back-to-the-land childhood. The vertical-log house had a composting toilet and no hot water or television. Most food was grown and preserved at home. This lifestyle allowed creativity and community to blossom.

Like the house that was built by hand, many of the creative accents were added by family and friends. This do-it-yourself attitude influenced Liz to take on many handmade projects throughout the years.
