Living that neo-peasant lifestyle
When it comes to parenting, there are different ways parents choose to raise their kids. Some parents raise their kids using the more up-to-date technology while others raise their kids mirroring they way they were raised back in the day.
And there are some who use the neo-peasant approach. Neo-peasants live off the grid, surviving while using the most natural sources. One family in particular documents their way of living via social media. They show what it’s like to live without cars, refrigerators, and even toilet tissue.
Neo-peasants don’t give their kids, nor do they indulge in, processed foods or artificial flavors; they only eat food that their community grows. They incorporate canning and fermenting in their diet, using only natural sources of heat to make food. They use wood-burning stoves to cook and prepare their food.
Artist as Family
Members of the family known as Artist as Family document their everyday lives via Facebook, Instagram, and their blog. The family of five, Patrick, Megs, Zephyr (10), Woody (1), and Zero the Jack Russell Terrier, reside in Australia. They give a close look at their neo-peasant lifestyle which includes bike riding, eating edible plants, and living life without toilet paper.
Art of Free Travel
Artist as Family also authored a book entitled The Art of Free Travel. The parents of the family talk about their “passion for locally sourced wild foods, low impact living and a spirit of adventure was put to the test with a road trip with a difference,” according to the book’s description.
The description also says that the entire family goes on a “6,000km year-long cycling journey along Australia’s east coast, from Daylesford to Cape York and back.”
