My name is Marita and I’m a 29-year-old science graduate and eldest of six. I’m passionate about organic farming, self-sufficiency and eating a locally-grown, plant-based diet.
I mean, what else do you want to know about me? I spent a few years after graduating traipsing through Europe wwoofing and farm-sitting and eating ridiculously delicious, nutritious food that I helped grow. I love the outdoors. I’m eccentric. I think overalls are cool. I hate going to the shops. I love foraging for stuff. I plan never to have Big Debts or a Mortgage as they seem Incredibly Scary.
Oh yeah, the blog name. You’re probably wondering about that. It’s because I’m loving life as I work from humus to hummus.* If you’re interested, follow my adventures as I pursue a simpler, more grounded and satisfying way of living.
*Note: humus is decomposed organic matter (think compost), which is vital to plant growth….including chickpea plants! Hence the humus to hummus link. If you don’t know what hummus is, I pity you. I TRULY PITY YOU.
