About Rosie

Rosie is a mum, smallholder, gite owner and writer who lives in Normandy, France with her husband, 2 sons, a dog, 4 cats and quite a few farm animals (but no hippos). She has a degree in Agriculture and Environmental Science and a passion for helping everyone become that bit greener. She doesn't expect you all to build an off-grid log cabin in the woods and knit your own nettle fibre undies but she hopes to show you how you can make simple changes that together will make a big difference to our beautiful world and make it a better place for our children.

Rosie has been blogging since 2008 and has now relaunched her blog as A Green and Rosie Life. When she is not tending animals, children, the garden or gite guests she enjoys walking, a good TV drama, eating chocolate and dreaming of the day she can own a hippo. She does not do DIY and detests avocados.

She can also be found at these places on the web
