Radical Homemaker’s Week

So what is a radical homemaker? According to Hayes it is: “someone who wasn’t ruled by our consumer culture, who embodied a strong ecological ethic, who held genuine power in the household, who was living a full, creative, challenging and socially contributory life….These families did not see their homes as a refuge from the world. Rather each home was the centre for social change, the starting point from which a better life would ripple out for everyone.”
 
Yup, that’s us! Perhaps it’s you too? Or perhaps it’s what you aspire to?
But what is this framework of values and practices that radical homemakers, young and old, rural and urban seem to share? Come back later in the week to find out!
