GAR­DEN­ING AUS­TRALIA

ABC1, 6.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

Ir­re­press­ible host Costa Ge­or­giadis and his off­siders get their hands dirty as they meet some ground­break­ers lead­ing the sus­tain­abil­ity charge in Aus­tralia. There’s Joost Bakker, a bloke who’s had more ca­reer changes than most, in­clud­ing restau­ra­teur, artist, ar­chi­tect, florist, builder and ecoen­trepreneur. His lat­est project in­volves cre­at­ing a ze­rowaste fu­ture, and prac­tis­ing what he preaches at home, in his gar­den and at his work. He built a house that was com­pletely re­cy­cled. His wall of more than 1000 ter­ra­cotta pots is awe­some. Then there are his pop- up sus­tain­able cafes, where the only waste is com­post.
