Today was a very relaxed show, with co-presenters Smokey, Jaime and Sarah enjoying the opportunity to play lots of great music and discuss news and current events of relevance to the environment.
Banksia Gardens are hosting a Sustainability Workshop, held at 71 Pearcedale Pde Broadmeadows on the 17th of October 6-8pm. Brainstorming is taking place and working groups are being formed about environmental initiatives for the area. This is a great opportunity to get involved in environmental projects relevant to Hume and the North West region.
Some of the topics discussed on the program included:
- New modelling of the Murray Darling Basin floodplains show irrigators might not have to give up as much water as first thought, at 3,200 gigalitres a year as opposed to 4,000 gigalitres. This is good news towards coming to an agreement amongst basin stakeholders.
- Protests continue about the gas pipe proposal by Woodside Petroleum at James Price Point, an environmentally sensitive area. The area is a breeding ground and thoroughfare for humpback whales and other marine life, and has the longest chain of dinosaur footprints in the world.
Music played today included:
Julian Cope - Reynard the Fox
The Pale Saints - Baby Maker
Dave Graney - Playin' Chicken
Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition
Ainslie Wills - Stop Pulling the String
The Jezabels - Mace Spray
