Top chefs, gardeners, producers, makers and wellbeing experts in the South West of England create ‘Slow Life Good Life’


Top chefs, gardeners, producers, makers and wellbeing experts in the South West of England have come together to create Slow Life Good Life, an online club and community to teach the nation how to thrive and grow in these challenging times. Through sharing practical lessons, friendly advice and regular inspiration, these talented locals will help us all save money, have fun and stay motivated through all that lies ahead, and reimagine how life might be different when all this is over. All proceeds will go towards feeding families and supporting small rural businesses in the South West who have been heavily hit by recent events.

We are living in frightening, unchartered times, searching for respite from the relentless news reports and building a new approach to our old lives. It is impossible to ignore the invisible threat which is moving with devastating consequences through our global society and local communities. Whilst in many ways this is the worst of times, it is also the opportunity for much needed change and hopeful beginnings.

Step forward Slow Life Good Life, a new virtual community, designed to support everyone in isolation, a friend to navigate through the turbulent times ahead. Inspired by real time events and the impact on their own lives, a group of talented people from a small community on the Dorset/Devon border have joined forces to create a platform to share their knowledge and skills. Pooling their resources they are offering practical advice, tips, inspiration and joy for individuals and families across the nation and the wider world. 

You’ll get to sit at Gill Meller‘s kitchen table while he teaches you how to make home made pasta, learn how to choose thrifty meat cuts with Steven Lamb, wander around Trill Farm with Kate Norman and Ashley Wheeler to learn about seasonal growing, creatively document your experience with photographer Holly Treloar, stop by at the Old Dairy Kitchen for breakfast with Chris Onions and Andy Tyrell, calm your mind with Insight Timer app meditation teacher Joey Hulin, stand by Naomi Devlin‘s workbench as she cooks up gluten free delights, become a barbecue hero with James Beard Award Winning food writer and chef James Whetlor, learn songwriting with Neil Treloar, former manager of Catfish and the Bottlemen, try out container gardening with Mark Diacono and garden designer Anna Wardrop, whip up a budget-friendly store cupboard feast with former Borough Market demo chef Luke McKay, navigate this unsettling time with bestselling self-help author Beth Kempton. Over the coming weeks they will be joined by makers, DIY and fitness experts as well as small business and personal finance specialists will play an important role in helping to reimagine a new normal. All this awaits you in the Slow Life Good Life Club.
