Welcome to the Organic Shepherdess blog!  I am Toni and have been passionate about organic living for all my adult life. I used to be considered ‘quirky’ (or worse!) for refusing to use weedkillers and bug sprays in my garden, relying instead on organic methods. I am so pleased that organic living is starting to become the norm and I have been joined by so many like-minded people .

So, welcome, like-minded people! If you want to embrace the organic life, this blog is for you.

I will be posting ideas, thoughts and tips weekly, with topics ranging from how to make organic skincare, growing your own food organically, caring for your animals without using unnecessary chemicals, to the science behind ecological issues.

Oh, and one more thing. Each week there will be a contribution from one of the crew – The Last Word!
