Ahoi there, how are we all? Episode #6 is where it’s at, Up Your Jumper style. In this episode I speak with Shanie and Tim from the Painted Fish. The Painted Fish is a B&B near the Fremantle beaches, built and designed to encourage and educate people about sustainable living and design. Shanie and Tim, speak a bit about how the Painted Fish has evolved and the other positives that have sprouted within their street.

Hello hello, good to have you back around the traps again. Half way to double figures, #5 is where we’re sitting. In #5 I visited the Apace Natives Nursery. Apace is “is a self-supporting, community-based organization promoting appropriate technology and environmentally sustainable development”, on the banks of the Swan River in North Fremantle, Perth.
I spoke to Aryan, who gave me a bit of background on what sort of projects the centre has been involved in, in the past, and the directions it is now taking.
Get into it and hear how smoking helps germination, in plants anyhow.

#3 is where we’re at! In this episode you’ll hear a bit about what’s happening in Perth. #3 is so packed full of stuff, it comes in two parts!
In part 2, you’ll hear from Alex, sustainability officer at Fremantle Council. He spoke about some of the intiatives that the council have going. As well he spoke about two ventures he’s been involved with, that while not succeeding, are interesting to hear about all the same.
