Is your sim tired of spending money on groceries? Do they want to eat healthier? Do they have a lot of free time? Well, then this is the aspiration for them!

It is found in it's own, new main aspiration category: Eco Friendly. I might add others eventually as well.

I completely agree with you. I never complain about anything Sims-related (except how long we had to wait for toddlers), but being outvoted by laundry? Geez, that had me so mad. So I too am looking forward to using this mod.

Excellent aspiration, I feel a new custom play through now there is an aspiration to go along with the latest "clean living" traits. Perfect, thank you.

Have been playing this mod for a week now and I love it! It really puts a depth of reality to gardening that wasn't really there before. Also, paired up with all of Icemunmun's "harvestables" there's an endless supply of stuff to do! This is so cool!

Been playing this aspiration for over a week now. It's great! I love it. I can't image what wonders you have in store for us in Part 2!! Maybe have it a career choice instead of an aspiration? That might be nice? I wish we had the 64x64 lot size we had in Sims 3. I love creating castles, mansions, farms, and ranches, and these 50x50 just a bit small for my needs. If there's a way to get a 64x64 lot size in-game, I'd love to hear how?

Found the 64x64 lot at last. It's in Brindleton Bay. You have to clear the estate that's defaulted there, but finally, some elbow room!! :D
