Welcome to Trevor’s Kitchen Garden.
This is where I will post information and ideas on growing your own food, based mostly on my own experience. I’ve been growing my own food for some years now and find it a great source of pleasure, nourishing for body, mind and spirit.
You are welcome also to take a look at the newly published book ‘Trevor’s Kitchen Book’ which I spent much of 2011 researching, writing and illustrating. Published in Ireland by Orpen Press, the launch takes place on Tuesday, March 27th in Hodges & Figgis bookstore at 7.15pm. Royalties from sales of the book go to an educational and environmental charity SEED. The launch is a chance for us to meet up and say hello also to the guest writers, including top TV chef Neven Maguire who has kindly agreed to launch this book, which has grown from 30 years of gardening and 3 years of updating this website. See ’4th week in March 2012′ for more details.
This site is intended for beginners who want to grow their own food. I know that a great many people want to do this but just don’t know how to get started. I’ll keep things simple throughout; after all, growing food is a simple, natural activity. As well as creating a diary of what I’m doing in my own garden each week, I’ll include some video clips to show you just how easy it is.
So, thanks for visting Trevor’s Kitchen Garden. Come back soon so see how things are coming on in my garden. Better still, why not do more food growing yourself, perhaps similar to what I’m doing and we can compare results!
