My guest this episode of the Urban Agriculture Series is Paul West – a legend in the gardening world – co-founder of Grow it Local with over 30,000 members around the country, and partnering with hundreds of councils to bring monthly workshops of how to grow food in your backyard! (I’ve been delighted to contribute sessions)
Paul is an author, broadcaster, chef, surfer and master grower. You might also know him from the TV show ‘River Cottage Australia’. He’s on a mission to help new growers experience the magic of delicious, fresh and organic homegrown food.
Tune in to our themed conversation for a chat about Paul’s journey into local gardening, how permaculture has informed what he does, why he’s so keen on sharing this as widely as possible, and why he thinks it’s so important to grow your own food.
