Listen to our elders. Listen to the earth. That’s what Rebecca Sullivan aka. Granny Skills urges us all to do.

This fast-paced conversation delves into Rebecca's commitment to local food systems, regenerative agriculture and Warndu, the Indigenous food farm and educational business she concocted with her hubby in South Australia's North West.

With a son on the way, Rebecca shares how she plans to help him - and all youngsters - avoid eco-anxiety: listen, ask questions, act without fear and always be kind - to yourself, to others, to mother earth. 

We reckon you’ll love this mama-to-be, regen farmer and food educator’s sound advice, vast experience, incredible life story and infinite warmth just as much as we did. 

Let’s hear it for Granny Skills!

Rebecca Sullivan on eating local and the power of simple observation

Today Brooke shares her conversation with the delicious and delightful Rebecca Sullivan. The two first spoke on the podcast back in 2017, and since then Rebecca has published four (!!) books, with another on the way, and moved from an apartment in Adelaide to a closed loop eco-farm in the Clare Valley. There’s just a bit for the two to catch up on, so we thought it was about time!

Rebecca reflects on the challenges and joys that living on the land have brought so far, how paying attention to nature and slowing down have come hand-in-hand, living with fear, failure and taking risks and the aim of her new work: reconciliation on a plate

Questions featured in this episode:

  1. What’s the transition been like as you moved to the farm, from theory to reality?
  2. How do you think about your own environmental impact?
  3. What does it practically look like to live in a circular (closed-loop) house?
  4. What was the seed for the idea of Warndu - both the company and the book?

Professor Rebecca Sullivan joins us to talk about her role as the chair of the steering committee for the Sexuality Studies Association of Canada, and her book on the infamous second-wave feminist anti-porn documentary Not a Love Story: A Film About Pornography (1982). The film is directed by Bonnie Sherr Klein, a feminist filmmaker who was an important part of the National Film Board’s Studio D, a project focused on providing female directors the chance to make their own documentaries. The film is co-directed by stripper/activist Lindalee Tracey. And while the film seemed to have started out with the intention of being a progressive analysis of feminist sexual exploration, it eventually turned into the iconic anti-porn landmark that we know it as today. Over the last couple of decades, the film has been lambasted within porn studies circles due to its uncritical adoption of the views of anti-porn feminists like Susan Griffin and Robin Morgan. Interestingly, pornography/feminist scholar Rebecca Sullivan’s book: Bonnie Sherr Klein’s “Not a Love Story” (2014) is a reparative reading of the film that argues that in fact, the documentary’s importance is in offering a platform for sex workers to speak in their own voice throughout the film. While the film is best remembered for its anti-porn second half, Sullivan’s extensive interviews with Klein herself reveal an original intention to give voice and respect to the marginalized sex worker. And ultimately, Sullivan’s book is a cautionary tale of how a director’s intentions can radically change once the footage is turned over to an editor. This is a bold argument to make considering how much bad will the film has garnered over the years from sex-positive feminists. And in this interview, Professor Sullivan answers all the tough questions we ask regarding her alternative reading of the film. It’s a very enlightening conversation!

Rebecca Sullivan wants you to embrace your inner granny - Summer Series

Hello, and welcome to the Slow Home Summer series! For 5 weeks over December and January we’ll be revisiting some of our favourite episodes from 2017, so we can walk the walk and slow down during the Christmas break. Also it turns out podcasts, just like fine wine, really do get better with age. Whether you missed them the first time around, or are having another listen, we hope you enjoy these poggies as much as we did!

In today’s episode Brooke sits down to chat with Rebecca Sullivan - founder of the ‘granny skills’ movement, serial entrepreneur, food lover and sustainability advocate. In what can only be described as an utterly delightful conversation, Brooke and Rebecca talk about traditions, heritage and the importance of intergenerational connection, as well as how to make the perfect blush for less than $1.

After coming to the realisation that she was completely removed from the process of creating and growing her own food (something to do with cheese and maggots in a small Italian town) Rebecca began the process of educating herself. From that realisation has grown a career of incredible depth and breadth, covering food, traditional skills, agriculture, creating natural homemade products and recently a pilot program that placed grandparents in local schools. This program saw older people teaching kids traditional skills around cooking and woodworking, which not only had an incredibly positive impact on the kids, but the older teachers as well.

Brooke and Rebecca talk about the importance of failure, and the liberation that comes once we accept and even embrace our own screw-ups. As a keen balcony gardener, Rebecca also shares her hottest hits for container growing, including some native edibles that are the most likely to survive some light-to-moderate neglect.

Meet Rebecca Sullivan – an eco-activist, food writer, urban farmer, and amazing cook. She’s passionate about preserving our heritage and passing on time-honoured traditions in the home that she refers to as “granny skills.”

She’s just released a new book, all about the art of making beautiful, simple products from scratch. It’s called The Art of the Natural Home, and I’ve got her on the show this week to find out more…

In this episode, we cover:

  • How we lost these simple household skills in the first place
  • Why slow food, chemical free living and making things from scratch is having such a resurgence in popularity right now
  • Why it’s so important to connect with our elders and learn skills and crafts from them (rather than just Googling and YouTubing that stuff!)
  • Tips for cleaning the home, naturally and effectively
  • And bacon. Delicious, delicious (home made) bacon
  • Did I mention bacon?

Rebecca walks her talk and is a frank and honest speaker, so grab a cup of tea, your crochet granny blanket, and listen along as we go down many juicy tangents about community, connection, and our emotional bond with food.

Rebecca’s stunningly beautiful new book, The Art of the Natural Home is out now through Simon and Schuster publishers, and you’ll find it at all the usual book stores.
