The shortest route from paddock to plate is when you grow food in your own garden. Tonight’s guest, Kate Punshon, is a former restaurateur who is now an agrarian adventurer, nurturing endangered flavours and trying to do so with an ever diminishing impact upon the planet. She writes at Roots, Recipes and Reasons but tonight, we’ve planted ourselves in her kitchen to discover what ideas and insights we can help sprout.

We discuss

  • Planning a food garden
  • Rule number one of gardening – love it – devote time
  • You are nurturing
  • Gardening is an extension of you
  • Prepare yourself and your soil
  • Apple struper
  • How to preserve foods

Our guest reporter, AJ, catches up with Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton of Treehouse Series fame, at the launch of the 78 Storey Treehouse book. Apologies to Terry, in Steve’s intro, recorded Tuesday night, he thought only Andy was going to be available, so please forgive us.

Brett Monten has produced a theme for the Musical Pilgrimage with Dan Drummond.

This week we had originally planned to be speaking with an Aboriginal elder but we just haven’t been able to make the stars align. In the meantime, Dan Drummond had curated a song by Hannah Yates about the stolen generation and it is so good we couldn’t bear leaving it in the cupboard. We hope you enjoy it later in the show.
