Hannah Moloney at Ballarat Begonia Festival

Access info

Hannah Moloney is best known for her work in permaculture and as a presenter on ABC’s Gardening Australia, quickly followed by her commitment to climate activism – oh and her pink hair which matches her hot pink house nestled amongst her urban farm in Nipaluna/Hobart.

After working on urban ag and small farms across Australia for a decade she settled in Tasmania and founded Good Life Permaculture 2023 which offers workshops, landscape design and community projects all towards building good lives and landscapes for all. She’s responsible for founding a stack of community projects over the years including co-founding Source Community Wholefoods (Hobart’s only food cooperative) and the innovative Hobart City Farm(since closed). She founded Home Harvest – the annual edible garden tour around Nipaluna/Hobart and has been involved extensively in working with local Councils teaching home composting to residents to reduce organics heading to landfill. For a while there, she was simply known as the ‘compost queen’.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
