Liz Zorab


Grounded is the story of a gardening journey, from bare field to bountiful feast! This is an inspiring tale of the transformation of a tired paddock to food abundance in just over four years with little money and a lot of resourcefulness and clever ideas.

Liz Zorab also tells the story of how she transformed her life, overcoming the effects of chronic illness to develop a self-sufficient, independent lifestyle. This has taken Liz and her husband away from the rat race, giving them greater freedom and a more abundant life.

"Grounded is a refreshingly honest and entertaining read that weaves together personal experience and practical food-gardening tips. It's a modern yet down-to-earth guidebook for aspiring smallholders on par with John Seymour’s The Fat of the Land."

"Immerse yourself in this engagingly written story of how Liz Zorab turned her life round and created an almost self-sufficient homestead on less than an acre of land. You’ll also learn a lot about gardening along the way. Whether you’re already working towards feeding yourself from your garden or haven’t yet started growing-your-own, you’ll find this book entertaining, informative and inspiring." 

Alexandra Campbell runs the Middlesized Garden blog and YouTube channel

"What a beautiful book this is; honest, uplifting, practical, and full of inspiring projects which I cannot wait to try in our own back garden. The author’s ‘can-do’ attitude, her openness, and her willingness to learn and adapt as she goes along, shine throughout. Most of all, I love the way Liz and her husband have gone the extra mile to work with nature. The results, on so many levels, are remarkable.
