Welcome to the Earth Probiotic Blog

We are not the most regular of bloggers (probably because we believe in the long form of writing).

When we do get down to writing an article, we hope it’s worthwhile to read (and share).

Our blogs cover what we’re passionate about. And what we find really interesting (like how to build a smokeless fire).

But what’s in common is that we really care about the environment, love gardening, are passionate about composting.

We don’t strive to be politically correct (and yes we agree with the science around climate change!).

And hope to inspire a conversation (and hopefully a bit of behaviour change).
