Introduction
Hi and Welcome to Off the Grid in OZ

Resized Image
Helping Others to Help Themselves!


Our names are Kerri and Steve and we have been living totally Off the Grid in the Central Goldfields area of Central Victoria, Australia for about 9 years. We are about 2 hours from Melbourne and about 45 minutes to both Ballarat and Bendigo.

Our site is all about how we live a simple, self reliant, and self sufficient lifestyle. We hope to share our experiences and knowledge of how we live.

Being off the grid, means not being attached to any services that most people take for granted. We are not attached to the Electricity grid, the water or sewerage grid, and we don't even have a rubbish pick up or mail delivery.

We have solar power; rain water tanks; composting toilets and mobile telephones. We like to grow our own fruit and veges; keep chooks and ducks; and store food. We like to Prepare for hard times and we offer you lots of information about how we do this.

We have built our new property in a very unique way, and not only was it economical but it is environmentally friendly.

You will find that we have many tutorials on how to do stuff. We will also tell you what products we have used and where to get them.

Please feel free to look around and contact us if you have any questions or just want to say hello.

BUT ....
Reading all of our articles based on our own experience, may just help you. So whack the reading glasses on and read if you want OR NEED any of our near 9 years experience to be of help to you ! :- )

This is our new website after many years with our older smaller one and for that reason much of our content at this time is in the process of being up loaded and set up ...
We also have many YOUTUBE vids , some of our own plus many from other very experienced people that may give you some good ideas as well

Don't forget to join our Facebook Group ... and like our Facebook Page :)

NOTE :
Please take the time to register , there are no strings, no cost, no spamming will come your way either. We would like to say hi to you, that's all :- ) and do make the effort to drop by over time for the new additions which will be many.




cheers
Steve & Kerri :- )

Off the Grid and what to grow where you are, is something to think about as far as what grows well in your area and how you perhaps should take advantage of that through the growing season ?

Grow heaps of what grows well in any season and put it to use over the off season :- )...

Well we finally got the new garden started. We are building our garden within a shade cloth house that surrounds the outside kitchen. Very convenient for not only working in the garden but when you harvest you are already in the kitchen so you can start cooking.

We will answer all your questions about life off the grid and you can check it out in person so you can see how it all works.
