Michael Kelly at the Apple Farm with Con Traas on Grow, Cook, Eat.
Presented by Michael Kelly (GIY founder) and Karen O’Donohoe (GIY head of community development), the Grow, Cook, Eat team will focus on beetroot growing skills and visit Tipperary where viewers will learn about orchard development skills.
During the programme, Michael details growing beetroot in your garden successfully, while the vegetable will be used by chef Jack Kirwan of Sprout and Co. food chain to make a delicious dish of crispy fried mackerel.
Michael gets shown around The Apple Farm outside Cahir by Con Traas, where since 1968 apples have been grown for juices, lemonades, sparkling juices, jams and cider vinegar.
Following The Apple Farm visit, Karen and head grower at GIY Richard Mee show everyone how to plant an ‘orchard in an hour’ in your own garden.
Grow, Cook, Eat is a very practical series, aimed at helping people with little or no knowledge of growing their own food. As well as the step-by-step guides to growing vegetables, the series showcases features on building raised beds and improving soil fertility.
The show is anchored at Grow HQ in Waterford city.
