Grown and gathered solutions in a disrupted climate

Guests in The Sustainable Hour on 9 October 2019 are Matt Purbrick, co-author of ‘Grown & Gathered’ and ‘The Village’, and Megan Blair, member of the Transition Street Geelong movement, and a reader and user of these two beautiful recipe books – for an inspiring talk around organic wine production, community vacuum, idle time, balance and resilience.

Over the phone, Rob McKechnie gives us a report from the Spring Rebellion in Melbourne, where we also learn that a group of billionaire climate criminals had a ‘last supper’ today, and we talk with 11-year-old student Ben from St Patricks Primary School Climate Council about their results from writing letters to local and federal politicians.

We play an ABC-sketch about The Greta Thunberg Helpline, and a Bombs Away remix of Greta Thunberg‘s famous New York speech. We don’t normally play ads in our program, but in a time of a biodiversity emergency, we had to make room for a special advertisement for Geelong Council’s wildflower walk at McCarthy’s Reserve, which is part of the Geelong Biodiversity Month. As it often happens, we round the hour off with Missy Higgins‘The Difference’ and the transformative Thunberg-statement, ‘You are never too small to make a difference.’

Acknowledgement

We at The Sustainable Hour would like to pay our respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which we are broadcasting, the Wathaurong People, and pay our respect to their elders, past, present and future.

The traditional owners lived in harmony with the environment and with the climate for hundreds of generations. It is not clear – yet – that as European settlers we have demonstrated that we can live in harmony for hundreds of generations, but it is clear that we can learn from the indigenous, traditional owners of this land.

When we talk about the future, it means extending our respect to those children not yet born, the generations of the future – remembering the old saying that…

The decisions currently being made around Australia to ignore climate change are being made by those who won’t be around by the time the worst effects hit home. How utterly disgusting, disrespectful and unfair is that?
