Grow Cook Eat Returns to RTE1

Grow Cook Eat Returns to RTE1

Again this spring, together with Bord Bia we are co-sponsoring the TV programme ‘GROW COOK EAT’ on RTE1.

The series is presented by GIY Founder Michael Kelly and Head of Community Development Karen O’ Donoghue who will showcase Grow HQ in Waterford city and explain how to successfully grow vegetables at home. Chef Katie Sanderson will be on hand with delicious recipes that use such freshly grown produce. Over the seven week series Mick and Karen will feature projects and food growers from across Ireland.

Stay tuned and you will learn that growing your own food is fun, tasty and an amazing way to learn for yourself what it takes to get food onto your plate. Having food growing at home means you can harvest exactly what you need – so you can enjoy the freshest food possible, waste free! What’s not to love?

The first episode airs Wednesday, 13th March at 8:30 pm on RTÉ 1.

Over the course of the series veg growing guides and recipes will be available. See for more.
