Sustainable Living – a happy and simple lifestyle from your backyard | Roman Spur | TEDxIpswich

An inspiring journey from new Australian to a self sufficient, sustainable and successful suburban ‘gardener’ who feeds his family of four and others from his own backyard. Follow Roman’s ideas on how to create your own Utopia.

Be inspired by Roman SPUR who shares his sustainable living story. Roman tells of his journey of how he and his family transformed an inner city rented property into a productive food source delivering sustainable living and complete happiness. As his story continues you will see how Roman converted a workshop shed into a liveable shed for his family on an acreage in suburbia where helping, sharing and caring is in daily order. Finally, a new exciting chapter of the story is going to be revealed. Roman will share how working towards self-sufficiency (growing food, making home produce, up-cycling materials, using urban environment to his benefit and living in a small functional community) make his family less reliant on the society. Roman and his family created a notion called Spurtopia and have inspired countless of people. So, please be inspired and create your own Utopia. #AnythingIsPossible
