What’s it all about?


Ligaya is a few things. The name means ‘happiness’ in Tagalog (the national language of the Philippines… That’s where Jelina and Marlon are from), it’s special kind of happiness that comes from being connected to family and community.

gardening for a long time
We’ve been gardening for a long time. This little guy’s 23 now!

This site and associated accounts are a record of the development of our lifestyle, house and garden as we journey through sustainability and into surplus. It’s about lessons we’re learning as we move along,  a list of our plans and ambitions for the place. Also, we hope it’s a teaching aid for others who are interested in following the same path.

We’re not experts on anything, but you can follow usas we learn on our blog or our various social media links.

We also have another blog on  steemitbig

We try to get our efforts out into the community, to establish friendships and partnerships with like minded folk.


To protect the Intellectual Property of folks who contribute, we place most of this blog in the Creative Commons under BY NC and  SA Attribution conditions. So you can share most of it, just don’t do it for profit or change the conditions.
