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 delighted to have Mitch to chat to and talk about all things MitchGrows and his Kitchen Garden. We talk about:

  • Mitch and his Kitchen Garden
  • Being a chef and moving to growing food
  • The influences being a chef have had
  • Growing different varieties and trying them all
  • Has being a chef made you grow food differently
  • Wanting to be self sustainable
  • What can be grown in a small space
  • Charles Dowding, Home acres and No-Dig
  • Climates and growing other stuff
  • Foraging
  • Mushrooms
  • And much much more...

Plus the all important quick-fire questions of course…. Will Mitch 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!!
