S9 E12 Sadie Chrestman - Farm schools, sharing white goods & building bloody great partnerships
Jun 24, 2024 Season 9 Episode 12
Jade Miles

This episode is akin to being a fly on the wall as you overhear a convo…  a warm, convivial, personal conversation to round out season nine.
 Listening back, while editing - with the Sunday roast cooking - it felt intimate to be part of this natter between Sadie and Jade which was recorded in late Spring  art the end of their respective days. They poured themselves a glass of wine and hit the recording button. Neither were in the mood to touch on doom-dom so they intentionally avoided consumerism, capitalism and colonialism, but unpacked many a worthwhile morsel to help us in our huddles - why do we all have our own white goods?
Join the chat for a little snapshot capture of two farming women who've created public facing businesses while they share what this experience has been like and where it might go to next...perhaps a school, perhaps a space for the community to activate, perhaps a collaboration of good folk bringing their best selves, hopes n dreams to  the table to create a homegrown hundreds and thousands solution to land  management.

Show Notes
Checking in on our promise to invite a complete stranger for a cuppa
Being ballsy enough to open yourself to strangers & invite them in
The weight of creating an experience that people become very familiar with & in time take a place of personal connection.
The pressure of having to deliver when you are someone's bucket list 
The pressure of being part of someone's integral nostalgia & memory
Moving away from being a restaurateur & stepping into full time farming & parenting
The importance of the person that holds all the pieces of a community, to drive, listen & manage cohesion 
Are the answers going to be found in the weeds
Could they run a high school stream on fat pig farm covering everything from science to economics?
Collecting people & bringing them in to her place of nurturing
Why she isn’t the power behind the throne but a partner in crime to live her best life
Removing gender from the way we define our best selves
Walking in step with many, even when those many aren’t necessarily the ones you would select if given a choice 
The long hard process of defining your no-go zones
Our greatest capability is to find solutions from within our community
Creating bioregional strengths that creates a culture 
How do we get people off social media where the sound bite lives and the complexity gets lost
Complexity needs to be celebrated and continued - keep it alive and be ok with that

SAFE and HELD - is her one word that reflects HUDDLES
