Stella Peg Carruthers is passionate about sustainable living and green values. Areas of particular focus for her include food politics as well as low-waste-lifestyling. A writer and mixed media artist as well as an eco-lifestylist, she calls herself a radical homemaker. In this role she carries out domestic tasks to affect wider societal change. Stella believes small changes at a personal level can make a big difference on the global issues of our time. She sees eco-actions, no matter how small, as acting as an antidote to environmental apathy.
She teaches this course to show how through modernizing traditional domestic skills for the 21st century, people can use work in and around the home as a way towards a better future for both people and planet.
