Grown & Gathered – Traditional living made modern
“Our goal was to write you all a practical guide to all of the traditional skills that we feel are so essential to living well, that was super easy to follow, practical and achievable for everyday living. And for absolutely anyone, anywhere. And we got so excited we wrote 352 pages for you all!”
“It is a documentation of what feels like our entire body of shared knowledge about all the things we do, know, and believe in – living with the seasons, growing, gathering, raising animals, trading, cooking, preserving and eating!
“This was without a doubt the hardest, but also the most rewarding, thing we have ever created, and we couldn’t be more excited (and proud) to share it with you! If you believe in living thoughtfully, knowing where your food comes from and prioritising health, food, family, friends and fun – then this book is for you. We hope with everything that you love it as much as we loved making it for you.”
One Tree Planted is a non-profit organisation focused on global reforestation. They are on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees!”
Follow Matt & Lentil to on their other projects to get inspired learn more about traditional living in the modern world on their website. From produce van to flower exchange, growing and eating own produce to the latest venture -producing minimum wine.
We began by selling our produce to some of Melbourne’s top restaurants, encouraging chefs to adopt principles of local, real produce and sustainable farming and packaging. Since then, we have embarked on a number of projects, including The Produce Van, where we pulled our van up each week in the streets of Melbourne to sell our homegrown vegetables and talk to people about sustainability and natural food, The Flower Exchange, where we grew flowers and traded them without exchanging money for a year and Minimum Wines, where we’ve converted a 125-acre vineyard into organic, regenerative management and now sell delicious wines made to nurture both the environment, and the drinker!
We currently live between Italy and Australia, spending our time creating, learning, writing poetry winemaking and experiencing all we can in the world of natural food and life. Lentil loves writing and photography, Matt growing food, winemaking and design.”
