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:

Cold Process Soap Making Class

When: Tuesday 10th October, 7pm

Where: Birdsong Market Garden, 118 Boundary St, Cranley, 4350 (near Gowrie Junction)

Cost: $25 which includes recipe sheet and some goodies to use in your first batch of soap.

Class duration: approx 1 hour

Bookings essential, to Racheal at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Sourdough Workshop

Date: 21 October 2017

Time: 10-12 noon

Cost $5

Where: Range Christian Fellowship, 15 Blake St, Wilsonton

What: Chris will be bringing several stages of the sourdough along to demonstrate how to feed, knead and bake the sourdough. Last workshop Chris baked a straight white, high-top loaf and a savoury peasant loaf which was like a pull apart - with cheese, cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs. It was delicious! Chris will have some sourdough starter for people to take home so if you are interested bring along a clean jar. Depending on numbers as I think this will be a popular workshop there may not be enough for everybody.

We will be having our handmade and homegrown swap before the workshop. If you would like to be involved bring up to five items that you have either made or grown. All items need to be on the table by 9.45am.

Bookings Required: RSVP 18 October.
