From Nature to Nurture - Growing Certified Organic Skincare
Leanne Sternbeck the creator of RADHA Handmade Organics and Naturals is the only person we know who is growing certified organic ingredients to use in the hand made certified organic skincare products she makes. Leanne is literally taking all the values we have about organics and provenance and putting them her in a beautifully hand crafted range of skincare products.
"I make everything from start to finish and every product does contain botanicals that were grown here on the farm in our certified organic gardens. We don't compromise on quality ever." Leanne Sternbeck
Although we commonly like to know where our food comes from we don't generally consider it possible to know where our body care products come from and never that the raw ingredients could be grown the same person making the products!
RADHA Handmade Organics and Naturals - More than just natural ingredients!
Smoked Food - Developing a Good Business Idea
This interview with Jeff Schultheiss about how he's combined his expertise as a food technologist, his love of smoking foods and smoke flavours with his determination to build his own business, is not only a fantastic introduction to a range of new products but also a great insight into what it takes to create a food product business.
The Global Plastic Problem with Jane Bremmer, National Toxics Network
We talked with Jane Bremmer who is currently the Zero Waste Australia campaign coordinator for the National Toxics Network. We talked about plastic - literally from the ground up.
We hope this episode helps to maintain the momentum behind the plastic 'wake up call'. Jane is adamant that if everyone knew plastic started with fracking, liquid natural gas and oil then everyone would be more concerned about finding ways to live without plastic than they are about plastic waste management.
After listening to this podcast you'll soon realise that your mental image of plastic pollution with marine plastic debris, marine pollution and ocean pollution restricts your understanding of the scale of the global plastic problem.
Researching Foods that Fight Cancer
This is a great interview with Dr Eliza Whiteside about cancer, foods that might fight cancer and the empowering actions that people with cancer can take. There is great empathy and compassion in Dr Eliza's work which comes from her first hand understanding of how disempowering a cancer diagnosis is. She is a survivor of breast cancer and her experience motivates her research drive to find a more natural way for reducing the risk of cancer, cancer prevention and ultimately be able to treat cancer naturally.
The Art of Herbal Apothecary
Krista Bjorn's journey into Herbal Apothecary - how she creates her own herbal medicine cabinet, some of her favourite herbal blends and two of her favourite herbal books, as well as links to her herbal apothecary workshops.
The Science of Re-purposing Food Waste
While there are many products available, including our hemp produce bags, and consumer education for reducing food waste at the household level, the second largest area of food waste is the food that's grown and never leaves the farm! So while we can certainly implement many practical solutions at the household level we still have a big problem that needs to be solved on a larger scale. This conversation with Dr Polly Bury gives us hope that the solution may be closer than we think and that there is great interest fast tracking the possibilities of re-purposing excess food or even parts of plants that have never been considered food, like pineapple skins and sweet potato leaves and vines.
