Maker Profile: The Good Life Lab

The Good Life Lab: Radical Experiments in Hands on Living

by Wendy Jehanara Tremayne


Wendy presents the material in her new book, The Good Life Lab, which contains the inspirational story of how they ditched their careers 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. Alongside their personal story they present the discovery of a fulfilling lifestyle that relies less on money. They teach the art living from waste and from nature and teach how to make biofuel, DIY appliances for automating the homestead, build structures, gardens, and grow and forage food, and medicine. They present reasons for makers to share their innovations and ideas through open source and creative commons licenses.

Wendy will be speaking and selling her book, The Good Life Lab: Radical Experiments in Hands-On Living at Albuquerque Mini-Maker Faire this August.
