Shownotes

The weekly podcast that talks all things food growing with those doing amazing things from across the UK and the world.

Every week we deliver you a podcast that interviews a fantastic food grower that is doing things differently, inspirationally or that has an awesome story to tell.

In this episode we are honoured to chat to Anjee from Plot26a on instagram and founder of the popular monthly participation hashtag #mymonthontheplot. In this episode we talk about:

  • Allotments and how to get one (Top tips!)
  • Varieties and different growing options
  • The season and what has struggled (Obv Blight!!)
  • Including children in growing and how that has developed for Anjee's 4 children
  • Perennial Edibles and their resilience
  • Different Perennial Edible plants to add to your growing
  • Chickens and how awesome they are
  • Chicken manure and using them in your growing
  • How being genuine builds an instagram following
  • The hashtag movement that is #mymonthontheplot and how it started

And much much more...

Plus the all important quick-fire questions of course…. Will Anjee be #teambeer or #teamcoffee ???

This is a podcast that will hopefully inspire and inform you whatever experience you have… from aspiring grower, to casual allotmenteer, right through to fully fledged market gardener. We will be talking everything from no-dig to permaculture, mushrooms to marketing.

We are your hosts Chris from Fanfield Farm and Jack from Jacks Patch and we will be bringing you an inspirational interview, some tips and tricks from our own farms as well as the fun feature of quick fire questions that we ask every guest…. Obviously including whether they prefer an evening farm beer or morning farm coffee!!
