Here’s the link to my September Simple Living Segment on ABC Radio. It went to air Tuesday 27th September.
|Bill Mollison (1928 – 2016)|
The topics we explore in this 25 minute conversation are:
- Remembering Bill Mollison
- Fighting off the Flu the Permaculture Way
- Waste in the fashion industry and the environmental impact of synthetic clothes
- Playing with Natural Dyes
- Sustainable Clothing
The Soundcloud blurb reads:
“When the dreaded lurgy heads for your house, and the kids start sniffling, coughing, and sneezing, do you reach straight for the medicine cabinet? Or do you, instead, take a wander down the garden path, picking plants and leaves as you go, to make up a brew?
Morag Gamble from Our Permaculture Life would probably choose the latter option, and she joins us tonight to tell us why!”
Now that I’ve recovered from the ‘lurgy’, I’ve had a wonderful couple of days offering tours of my garden and organising a Young Ethos Scholars program – a masterclass for children in writing and theatre with a sustainability focus. I’m getting ready now for a workshop making salves and other natural healing and beauty products from my garden. It’s going to be so much fun.
