On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

tim entwisle, garden podcast

On this weeks garden radio show, Peter Donegan and Brian Greene chat with Tim Entwisle, Director at Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, Melbourne Australia.

On this part 1, we discuss everything from his role as Chief Executive of one of the most beautiful botanic garden on the planet The Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, Australia and also The Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne; to his love of coffee, his office location and just how a non die hard plants person who used to walk the bush looking for gold with his grandfather, changed from a study of maths and physics to botany right up to the position he holds today.

Of course we delve into the love hate relationship some may have with the Titum arum, climate change and how Ireland may have too much but in Australia too little water and how that has changed their choice of plants and also a little of how plants as we grow up sometimes become a little cool and uncool as we grow up.

This part 1 of 2. Part 2 airs next Friday live at 3pm. Just after in all good podcast stores.

The Sodshow meets Michael McEvoy and Elaine Brown of GIY International

On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

michael mcevoy, elaine browne

On this weeks garden podcast Brian Greene chats with Michael McEvoy and Elaine Brown, GIY International and GIY Ireland.

After returning from England to his hometown of Belfast, Michael decided to set up his own GIY group in part, to get himself a little more in touch with his community.Elaine on the other hand has a slightly nomadic (as Brian calls it) touch to her travels but is more in line with making GIY (Grow it Yourself) international.

With groups in Germany, Dorset, 40 thousand children and around 400 schools involved across the UK and Ireland and a remit – if you might call it that…. of growing, your own food….. this is literally a whirlwind of a conversation with 2 of the voices a little more behind the scenes, maybe, that might just encourage you to think that little bit differently doing something that can only make you smile. Love it.
