This week on The Living Room, Jamie Durie is in Rooty Hill (there’s a line!) and a wombat is in the studio.
Gardens with Jamie Durie: Rooty Hill
After a few years of travelling the globe, newly engaged couple Mark and Kim moved back to Sydney to help look after his sick parents. They moved into a new home that was built on an old paddock and while the house is modern their backyard remains a weedy dirt patch surrounded by a non-descript fence. Their dreams of a sustainable garden where they can grow their own fruit and veggies had stalled at the dream phase until garden wizard Jamie Durie came knocking on their door.
Pet Studio with Chris Brown: George the Wombat
Dr. Chris brings a special guest into the studio in the tiny form of George the wombat. Wombats are one of Australia’s unique marsupial animals. But sadly the more common interaction they have with humans in the wild involves road accidents. George the Wombat’s mother was killed on the roads near Barrington Tops, New South Wales. Luckily he was taken in by The Australian Reptile Park where he was provided all the love and care he needed to thrive. Now one-year-old and about the size of a football, George is looking forward to a happy life ahead. Chris provides information about wombats and what you need to do if you come across one that has been hit by a car.
Food with Miguel Maestre: Chicken Drumsticks
