Let’s Grow Wild is a smallholding blog and more.

I’m Georgina, a writer and author. When I was a child, I dreamed of living ‘wild style’ in the woods, growing my own food, foraging and keeping livestock to supply food throughout the year. That feeling has never left me. I like nothing more than exploring and getting back to nature, finding the forgotten uses and knowledge of plants, and survival skills that were second nature to our ancestors of old.

Smallholding book

My book, A Beginner’s Guide to Smallholding, available in January 2018

Now, I write about it through this blog and my published books. My aim is to share knowledge, not just my own but other readers’ knowledge too, and to encourage folks to think about their wild side.

I don’t want to turn my back on modern life, its conveniences, technology or round the clock work/life, but it seems like it has replaced something fundamental. Our connection as humans to the natural world that created us in the first place.

Let’s Grow Wild is a smallholding blog and more, jam packed full of knowledge and tips on everything from growing your own food, raising livestock, and enjoying the great outdoors.


Build a den in the woods, make a camp fire, cook some bacon and beans. Farm, Forage, Gather and Cook! Put your mucky boots on, Let’s Grow Wild!
