The latest stop Grow It Cook It roadshow was the Twin Towns Community Garden on the 22nd of September. All-Ireland fever was in the air, with flags, bunting and GAA tops everywhere, a real positive vibe in the town..as I write this the match is not-yet started...so how Donegal get on is unknown....but I do know that everyone loved Chef Ian Orrs cooking....every plate was near licked clean. Ian focused on seasonal produce, all from the garden to make super tasty dishes...
The Grow it Cook It event was part of the wider celebrations to mark the official opening of the Twin Towns Community Garden, the ribbon cutting being performed by Community Garden supporter Mary Scally, shown here with Tara Rowan, who is the brains behind the whole event. You can follow the garden on their Facebook page here
After the cooking we focused on what to do now in the kitchen garden. We planted crops of Kale, Cabbage, Savoy, Leeks, Cauliflower, Broccoli and Spinach. Giving lots of advice on Feeding, pest prevention, harvesting and more...Folks were invited to get stuck-in, helping to plant nearly 300 plants, what a great way to create a great legacy from the day in the form of a great spring harvest in the garden!
