Maverick organic gardening on a clay hillside.

Notsensibles guitarist and Emergency Medicine doctor Stephen Hartley, uses the annual cycle of his rugged hillside organic smallholding as a framework for an ever unfolding story, using universal themes in a contemporary context.

His regular blog, shows how clean food growing can be incorporated into every day busy life.

With searing irreverence and vernacular wit, he weaves in stories of: writing a book; running a record label; Notsensibles; building guitar amps; letterpress and woodblock printing and more.

He advocates questioning everything, constantly scrutinising government corruption and the misappropriation of science.

It’s all about the DIY ethic and work-life balance – dancing to a different tune.
