Marybeth Janerich is the Wasatch Community Gardens, Community Education Programme Director.

Wasatch offer gardening spaces, education and community programmes and events working in the community through a variety of youth, education and school garden programmes. The reality is they go a stage further than that. Managed and run by the finest of the fine their programmes run a little deeper in some cases into community issues whilst at the same time keeping horticulture and growing as the bit that makes it all come together.

Live from Salt Lake City Utah, brought to you by Thyme and Place, this is the first show from the second night of The Sodshow Live. Peter Donegan was there for a little over one week were 6 guests in total, over 2 nights either side of St Patricks Day 2017 were interviewed in front of a live audience.

That story is most probably better told by The Salt Lake Tribune and you can see the story in Pictures here – The Sodshow, Salt Lake City

Garden Podcast: Ian Price, RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 – Part 1 and 2.

Above, part 1. Below part 2 with Ian Price.

Peter Donegan chats with Ian Price, Garden Designer at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017.  

@sodshow on twitter or facebook The Sodshow

Following his breakthrough gold medal success at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park in 2014, idverde is delighted to be supporting Northern Irish designer, Ian Price, as he takes his place for the first time at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Ian is making his debut with a heartfelt garden created to represent his personal experience of suffering from and living with depression. The garden, ‘Mind Trap’, is his unique interpretation of what it’s like to suffer from a debilitating mental health problem.

‘Mind Trap’ endeavours to explain to others that have no personal experience of suffering what it may feel like, by way of a physical tangible living garden where every element is symbolic of the struggle with mental ill health. The garden’s mission is also to remind other sufferers that they are not alone, and to highlight the role that green spaces can take in the recovery and management of mental health.

The garden will be enclosed with viewing panels representing bars, and with contrast planting designed to look as though withering or dying with more vibrant and healthy plants. The main materials include metal walls, a central pool with an isolated seat in the middle, and paths which will be finished with loose gravel. Planting will reinforce the metaphor of the difference between the darkness of depression and the light that symbolises hope and recovery as shade tolerant, darker planting drifts into brighter and sun loving plants.

This in two parts, is the story of Ian Price the person, the garden designer and the creator of the Mind Trap garden at RHS Chelsea 2017.

Garden Podcast: Philip Turvil, Programme Manager, Grow Wild UK

On This Episode of the Garden Podcast:

grow wild uk, philip turvil, garden podcast, sodshow

Peter Donegan chats with Philip Turvil, Grow Wild UK, Programme Manager based at The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Thoughts or comments ? @sodshow on twitter or on facebook as The Sodshow

This isn’t Philip’s first time on The Sodshow garden podcast; and fair to suggest that when he was last on the discussion was very much about his back story, his career in horticulture to date and his evolution up to taking on the position he now holds; that is, Grow Wild UK, Programme Manager.

More than anything Philip is a gentleman who I hold in very high regard and I feel it fair to suggest that he is as enthusiastic in my mind, as I would have been aged five or six. What’s funny is that sometimes I feel like a child in grown-ups trousers – of horticulture that is. In that, that enthusiasm has never ever diminished in any way whatsoever. And to meet someone who without even trying, albeit with a very different career path, has a very similar set of (photosynthetic) values – is pretty awe inspiring.

What I personally found fascinating, was that he also gets to close his eyes, to imagine what if – and –  to see it become a reality. And that ladies and gentlemen is the coolest job in the whole wide world.

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr Philip Turvil.

Garden Podcast: Jonathan Ward, Garden Photographer, Ginger Horticulture

On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

Garden photographer Jonathan Ward chats with Sodshow garden podcast host Peter Donegan.

The first ever garden photographer on The Sodshow, you may assume it would be as simple as it sounds. But and maybe as is always the case, this story is just that slight bit different.

Thoughts or comments ? @sodshow on twitter or on facebook as The Sodshow

From rose pruning and the influence from elders at a younger age, to management at a very high level and a stint at Myerscough College to some of the biggest landscaping projects one might not have considered, Jonathan’s now title in mind. We delve sideways into the business that was landscaping and where and why it may not have gone according to plan for Jonathan. To just how and why one, within the UK horticulture industry ends up remaining slightly cleaner, still within that industry, travelling the world and doing (or maybe more to the point) viewing what it is you still love so very much.
