EP 22 THE HUNGRY GARDENER

This is the second podcast we recorded on our road trip to Ballarat in Central Victoria. We met and spoke with Lou Ridsdale the founder of the FOOD IS FREE not fo profit initiative in Ballarat. We spoke to her in the laneway beside her house which is the official hub for local and community engagement.

It’s such a simple and fantastic idea...People can leave excess food for others to share, anyone can pick up seeds to use to grow food, people can drop off compost to be managed and shared. It is a really interesting idea with community at its heart.

Lou has also been instrumental in setting up further community garden initiatives as well. We discussed what motivates her and how the FOOD IS FREE idea came to be.

For more information go to foodisfree.com.au or visit the hungrygardener.com.au

Enjoy the conversation.

In the latest Episode of The Hungry Gardener Podcast I met with Head Chef, Blayne Bertoncello of OMY Restaurant in Beaconsfield, Victoria.
Together with his brother Chase, they have built an incredible reputation for creative, inspired and truly seasonal fare that has to be experienced to be believed.

They operate with a sustainable and minimal waste philosophy, and grow almost all of the restaurant produce on a nearby property, including hops for home-made beer and honey from their own bees.

I visited the farm and spoke to Blayne as he took me on a tour of the incredible operation that requires a team of dedicated employees and service staff to manage. It is a truly amazing, 7 days a week undertaking, with the restaurant receiving high accolades across the industry including a prestigious Two Hat's for culinary excellence by the Good Food Guide.

We are in awe of the dedication, passion and long-term vision that it takes to run a restaurant like this.

Please enjoy this episode with Blayne Bertoncello of OMY
