Barry GreenBarry Green has been Chairman of Donnybrook Community Radio since it was formed in 2011, and has been on air since 2016. He trained as a radio tech with the Department of Aviation and while working for them, spent 2 years on Cocos Island in the Indian Ocean. There he first encountered community radio and saw what powerful community communication tool it was. They also own tourist radio stations in WA, (https://soundcloud.com/radiowa and https://soundcloud.com/westerntouristradio ) and has been making program for that, without any formal training .
"We have also been farming organically for almost 30 years and attending organic farming events where we always seem to be preaching to the converted about the importance of soil health.
I see participation in the National Features and Documentary Series as an opportunity to learn more about the craft of radio program creation. I hope the program will encourage the wider population to ask more questions about how their food is produced so that we can move to a more economically and environmentally stable food system, that makes people healthy, not sick."
