The Good Life Lab is the inspirational story of how one couple ditched their high-powered careers and high-pressure life in New York City to move to rural New Mexico, where they made, built, invented, foraged, and grew all they needed to live self-sufficiently, discovering a new sense of abundance in the process.  Alongside their personal story are tips and tutorials to guide readers in the discovery of a fulfilling new lifestyle that relies less on money. Tremayne believes that everyone has the skill and creativity to make it work. The book teaches about making biofuel, appliances, structures, gardens, food, and medicine, but is also filled with illustrations contributed by a community of artists and illustrators, making the book a work of art. It shows readers how to create out of waste, reconnect with nature, and live off the grid, it is the manual for life in a post-consumer age.

Wendy Jehanara Tremayne was a creative director in a marketing firm in New York City before moving to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, where she built an off-the-grid oasis in a barren RV park with her partner, Mikey Sklar. She is the founder of the textile repurposing event Swap-o-Rama-Rama, which has spread all over the world; a conceptual artist; a yogi; a gardener; and a writer. She has written for Craft's webzine and Make magazine and, with Mikey Sklar, keeps the blog Holy Scrap.

VB's events coordinator, Christina, recommends this book! Also, this event is co-sponsored by Transition Whatcom.
