If you feel it’s a bit like deja-vu then you’re not wrong! This is the second part of a pair of interviews with Marion about the Bloom Fringe movement. This second half is very interesting. Hear how Marion and Esther decided to start Bloom Fringe, how many events they supported last year, and what they hope to do in 2015. Overall this is an extremely inspiring interview and well worth a listen!

Here’s the first interview from last week that you should go to first if you’ve not heard it already!

The Sodshow Meets Marion Keogh of Bloom Fringe – Part 1

On This Weeks Show:
Marion Keogh, Ciara Conville, Peter Donegan - The Sodshow

Peter chats to Marion Keogh, garden designer, all around busy woman, and one of the organisers of the Bloom Fringe. Pictured also above is Ciara Conville of Two Spots Coffee – thanks for being awesome and facilitating our interview.

In this preliminary interview, Marion discusses what motivated her to change careers and become a garden designer. She describes how important it is to have a way of expressing yourself, how she juggles parenting with running a business that is so demanding at times, and is wonderfully down-to-earth (excuse the pun).

We think that the Bloom Fringe project is pretty wonderful, and after hearing this interview you’ll understand more about the brains behind it.

The Sodshow meets Fiona Kelly at Malahide Allotments


On This Weeks Show:
sodshow (2)

Peter chats to Fiona Kelly of Malahide Allotments. She holds 100 sq m allotment and is a very popular blogger. She writes the popular blog “Fiona Grows Food” which frequently makes us laugh, enjoy, and empathise with the trials of allotments. Note – Caitriona is a big fan!

She’s not the stereotypical 26-year-old woman in Ireland, she is so full of energy and enthusiasm. Here she explains why she likes to have an allotment, and why she chose to start one.

The Sodshow meets Horticulturist Rory Newell at Waterford Institute of Technology

 

On This Weeks Show:

Paul T Smyth, rory newell, peter donegan, laura quinn

Peter talks to Rory Newell about how his journey took him from DJ’ing to horticulture, via a sales job. It’s a Sodshow first, he’s a self-confessed “Plant Pervert”. Hmmm not sure about that term!

Rory speaks very highly of, friend of the Sodshow, Cara T Daly and how she is moving things in a positive way to break the gardener stereotype. He also (quite rightly so) believes that gardening isn’t just for those Spring and Summer months, and that a huge amount of education and opportunity is missed by media and broadcasters.
