Lolo Houbein, author, gardener and co-founder of Trees for Life, talks to us about her remarkable journey from the food-deprived winters of Europe in World War II, to a rich life of gardening and writing in the Adelaide Hills.
She tells host Nicole Haack about her philosophy of backyard food production and why scratching out just one metre square of earth to grow your own herbs and vegetables will make your life – and the planet – happier and healthier.
Check in to The Forager each week in July for new episodes of the podcast.
