Today we chat with Madeline Hudson about waste free cooking. She is about to run a zero waste cooking course through the Castlemaine Community House and has been running the community lunch for four years. Those locals to Castlemaine may have seen her performing as Lilly Pilly Green in the Zucchini Clan… But people may not know that she comes from a background of frontline direct action and forest blockades. Madz talks about it all today, with a few songs thrown in for fun!
Saltgrass is produced in Castlemaine, on Djaara country, home of the Dja Dja Wurrung people. We pay respects to elders past, present and emerging.
Madz spent her 20s protesting deforestation in Gippsland with a group called Geco
She then moved on to work with Friends of the Earth Melbourne with ACE and did a radio show called Radio Active at 3CR
The music in this episode is all by the Zucchini Clan
We played the songs 'seasons' and 'water'.
