Banana Lounge Broadcasting: Lou Ridsdale Teaches Us How to Heal Through Gardening
Lou Ridsdale has come a long way from her days as a music publicist, and a production manager for Meredith Music Festival. Instead of digging through record crates and promoting new artists, Lou now digs through ounces of soil and promotes community solidarity through gardening. The ‘rock n’ roll gardener’ joins fill-in host Sophie Miles on Banana Lounge Broadcasting to chat about the intersections of her life, the healing properties of gardening and her ongoing role in the Food is Free project in her home town of Ballarat. Lou also sticks around to spin some tracks from the likes of Patti Smith, Beastie Boys and more.
