Introducing The Forager podcast: inside South Australia's food culture

SA Food Month

Throughout SA Food Month, we’ll be uploading episodes of our new The Forager podcast – telling in-depth stories about South Australia’s food culture. Today, in episode one: the fascinating story of writer and gardener Lolo Houbein – one of our state’s most profound thinkers about food.

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.

SA Food Month is an initiative of Solstice Media – publisher of InDaily, SALIFE and CityMag.

The Forager podcast is produced for Solstice Media by The Message Pod.

Lolo Houbein’s latest book Magic Little Meals, co-authored with Tori Arbon, is published by Wakefield Press.
