Jam on a garden radio show you shout in a very calm tone…..

In 2011 Nicola Smyth was made redundant from her day job. And having made and sold some jams and chutneys at local fairs and as gifts for about a year previous, she decided to make it her full time job. As you do….

Three years later and with too many awards to her name, Big Red Kitchen is now stocked in 60 outlets in 22 different counties around the country. Take a listen as Peter Donegan and Nicola chat everything from why to fruit growing, foraging, buying local, the American Ambassadors House and your Mams rhubarb.

The Sodshow meets Mark Jenkenson of Cockagee Cider

On This Weeks Show:

mark jenkenson, peter donegan

One might assume that this weeks podcast would be just about the drink that is cider…. but to make cider we [logically] need apples. And therefore trees. And when you take a a gentleman who thought himself how to graft, grow research and develop an almost extinct variety that is the Cockagee apple, you really do get more horticulture than you maybe ever expected. A lot more….

Ever wanted to grow one or more fruit trees at home ? Maybe you just don’t know what to do with that small holding ? Take a listen as Peter Donegan chats with Mark Jenkenson from the Boyne Valley award winning Cockagee [alias The Cider Mill] keeved cider.

The Sodshow meets Brian Geraghty of Malahide Allotments, Epilepsy Care Foundation 2014

On This Weeks Show:

malahide allotments

It was March 2012 when Peter Donegan was invited to visit an overgrown field in Malahide and there to meet Brian Geraghty who had a vision of what would become Malahide Allotments. At the time, The Sodshow didn’t even have it’s own website or twitter account ! Allotments mildly to one side and epilepsy in mind, there was a greater motivation in mind with this project. Just over 2 years later Peter returns to find out just what, why and how it all happened.

Utterly amazing, inspirational and very wonderful. Not to be missed ;)

The Sodshow Meets Brian Geraghty. Malahide 2012

brian greene, peter donegan

Way back in 2012, when The Sodshow had no website or twitter account or an arse pocket in the back of our pants for that matter ~ not a joke by the way, Peter Donegan went to Malahide to meet a gentleman by the name of Brian Geraghty.

Peter and Brian stood in an overgrown field sheltering by a hedgerow in the howling rain and recorded an interview for that Fridays Sodshow. Mad stuff, is quite the understatement. It was this interview about Malahide Allotments.

Tomorrow Friday, July 4th 2014 Peter returns to meet Brian to find out just what happened, what it became and why.

Noted on the original show notes is the following:

This week our guest is Brian Geraghty of Malahide Allotments, a project by The Epilepsy Care Foundation, a registered charity, to provide allotments for people with epilepsy and associated disorders. The site will consist of 300 allotments, 225 will be rented to the public to fund the project and 75 will be used for our project.
