The Good Life Lab: Radical Experiments in Hands-On Living
Group discussion and book signing

Thursday Sept 19th 7-9:30pm

If you've ever dreamed about living a self-sufficient life off the grid, this event is for you!

Come meet Wendy Jehanara Tremayne as she discusses her inspiring new book, "The Good Life Lab: Radical Experiments in Hands-On Living"

Named one of the best summer books of 2013 by Publishers Weekly (a "rollicking, inspiring tale"), The Good Life Lab is the inspirational story of how one couple ditched their 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 value and abundance in the process. wendyAlongside their personal story are tips and tutorials to guide others in the discovery of a fulfilling new lifestyle that relies less on money.

 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.
