This Amazing Woman Has Lived Off The Grid For 30 Years

Please Share This Page:

Meet Jill Redwood, a writer and environmental activist, who has been living off-grid for more than three decades in East Gippsland in Australia. She arrived many years ago in East Gippsland to escape from the hustle-and-bustle of city life that she’d grown up with. Her path to a successful alternative lifestyle started when she moved to the town of Goongerah following the 1983 bushfires which destroyed her property. Since then, she has been a poster girl for environmental activism and an inspiration to many who are dreaming of living a low environmental impact life.



Jill survives on around $80 a week, has over 60 animals to keep her company including chickens, geese, and milking cows, and tends a garden that serves as an organic supermarket right outside her doorstep. She only eats the food she’s grown and made herself.

With no homebuilding experience, Jill learned to construct her house which is made entirely out of reused and recycled materials including timber off-cuts. She spent eight years to build the home, during which she lived in a smaller dirt-floored bark hut. It cost her about $2000 to build her present home.

Redwood previously worked as a lab technician before moving to Victoria where she had a variety of jobs including truck cleaning, fruit picking, and laboring. She lived on a number of properties before settling in East Gippsland.

She earns a modest income as a columnist and cartoonist with “Earth Garden” magazine – which has been her bread and butter for 25 years. Her off-grid lifestyle attracted the attention of many media outlets including British newspaper “The Daily Mail” and Australian TV program “Domain.”

Her entire property is powered by a small solar system just under 1kW in size. She always upgraded her system to meet her modest needs but was forced to install a new one after the Ash Wednesday bush fires of 1983. The new solar panels are connected to some old truck batteries, all located on the front veranda.

She collects water from a nearby creek using a water wheel contraption that pumps water to the house and garden. She prides herself of devising unique systems of self-sufficiency in which everything is either composted or recycled.

Jill has learned so many lessons from being an early adopter of living an off-grid lifestyle. She advises others who consider going off-grid to pay attention to the amount of power they use. She also stresses the importance of working out what they need, so they are not going without.





Redwood also coordinates Environment East Gippsland, an environmental organization that aims to protect Victoria’s ancient forest and the surrounding area. Her devotion to environmental activism won her the 2015 Environmentalist of the Year award from the state government.

Since the age of five, Jill always wanted to be a hermit. Her story will inspire others who are yearning for simplicity and who have a taste for mindfulness.
