Simple Living Toowoomba is a ministry of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and is all about:

  • passing on of knowledge, skills and experience
  • encouraging people to simplify and get back to basics
  • making instead of buying
  • trying to break the consumerism cycle
  • seeking a slower-paced life
  • making do with what we have
  • regaining lost arts of days gone by
  • discovering the joy of home
  • reviving the ways of our grandparents
  • building community

How can you be involved?

Each month a workshop or demonstration is held on different topics such as soap making, rag rug making, composting, plant propagation and cooking with herbs, just to name a few.

On the second Saturday of the month there is a Simple Living Morning Tea where people can come along to chat and learn from each other, watch a cooking demonstration and join in a homegrown and handmade swap. People are invited to bring five items along that they have grown or made and then we swap them with each other.

We have a new craft group that is meeting every Monday from 1-3pm at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 23 Glenvale Road. Just bring along the craft that you are working on and a gold coin donation to cover the cost of a cuppa. Also there will be plenty of ladies who are only too willing to share their skills if you would like to learn a new craft.

Also on the first Wednesday of the month there is a Coffee, Chat and Craft night where people can bring whatever craft they are working on and enjoy some fellowship with some other ladies. Everybody is welcome to come along to participate in the events or if anybody would like to run a workshop I would love to hear from them.

Upcoming Workshops:

Nourishing Traditions Intro Workshop

Bone broth, kefir, kombucha, soaked grains, activated nuts, DIY baby formula, cultured cheeses, raw dairy, fermented foods and beverages and more. Though these items are slowly becoming household names, some are still unfamiliar and even confusing to people.

Nourishing Traditions is the reference book and cookbook based on research by Weston A Price in the 1930's. He was a dentist with a passion for researching diets of traditional/untouched people groups around the world (who happened to have 99% perfect dental health) and this book puts his findings into practice. This type of lifestyle is especially of interest for people with gut disorders.

In this workshop we'll demonstrate how to prepare these foods/drinks, sample them and look at ways to heal and nourish your body through diet.

When? Wednesday August 23rd, 1pm

Where? Birdsong Market Garden, 118 Boundary St, Cranley, 4350

Cost $20 per adult and you'll go home with an info sheet and an item to get you started (ie jar of sauerkraut, or a kombucha scoby, or a jar of milk kefir)
