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 Andrew from Urban Herbs to chat to and talk about all things Herb growing and being Herb Geeks… We talk about:

  • The story of Urban Herbs
  • Doing what you love and sticking with it
  • Different and strange varieties of herbs
  • Many tangents and inspiring stories
  • How completely re-starting your garden can be super fun
  • How ordering herbs has bonded a Husband and Wife with health issues

  • The way that smells and tastes bring people together
  • Tips for growing herbs

  • Pivoting small businesses and going all in
  • How work can really fulfill you
  • So so so much more

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