Media & Resources

The Urban Nanna specialises in teaching people about traditional skills, crafts and methods of living set in the framework of a modern-day world. As well as reviving traditional ways of cooking, preserving, and crafting, we focus heavily on permaculture and living a more sustainable lifestyle by gardening and adopting zero-waste principles in everyday life, particularly within the suburban rental market.

We do this through regular written content both online and in print; interviews; an increasing range of hands-on workshops across a wide variety of topics; and tailored coaching & consulting sessions on a broad range of topics in different settings. Topics have included foraging, preserving, gardening, fermenting, handcrafts including creative mending and basket-making, zero-waste living, eco-cleaning and social media management, but the scope is huge, and clients can set the direction of any session they book.

New public events are posted on the Events & Coaching page, and advertised on social media. To stay up to date with what’s on offer, Subscribe below and follow us on Instagram and Facebook.
