Hello – thanks for visiting!
I’m a writer, cyclist, and explorer. I enjoy cooking, travelling to new places, and a variety of outdoor activities.
Hilary Makes started out as a food and DIY blog a few years back, and has since grown into something much more.
The most recent of my musings are related to something called planetary health. The term means a lot of things to a lot of different people, but basically it looks at how our health as humans is affected by all the stuff we’re doing to the Earth. Planetary health sees the Earth, and all the species that live and depend on it, as an interconnected system — something I’ve long valued, but never quite had the words to describe. I’m currently working for the Planetary Health Alliance in a dream job: producing a series of case studies about the worldwide solutions that are addressing what happens when we disrupt our planet’s natural systems. (Say what? More background information on this blog post.)
So welcome to the latest iteration of Hilary Makes: documenting future solutions for this beautiful, complex planet. And I’ll be sharing my own story along the way.
