Episode 6

Hannah (@GingerGrows1) – Allotment Life, Growing in North East Weather and The Growing Community on Instagram

The weekly podcast that talks all things food growing with those doing amazing things from across the UK and the world.

Every week we deliver you a podcast that interviews a fantastic food grower that is doing things differently, inspirationally or that has an awesome story to tell.

In this episode we talk to Hannah who runs an amazing allotment in Newcastle. She has an inspirational instagram account with a wonderful following over at – In this weeks episode we talk about:

  • How Hannah got her allotment and the luck of the draw
  • The challenges faced on her allotment journey
  • Pivotting a 50 year old plot to no-dig
  • The community of growers
  • The knowledge of people at allotments
  • Growing on every windowsill
  • Growing to make you happy
  • Different varieties and seed swapping
  • Wonderful woodchip

Plus the all important quick-fire questions of course…. Will Hannah prefer a beer or a coffee on the allotment?!


This is a podcast that will hopefully inspire and inform you whatever experience you have… from aspiring grower, to casual allotmenteer, right through to fully fledged market gardener. We will be talking everything from no-dig to permaculture, mushrooms to marketing.

We are your hosts Chris from Fanfield Farm and Jack from Jacks Patch and we will be bringing you an inspirational interview, some tips and tricks from our own farms as well as the fun feature of quick fire questions that we ask every guest…. Obviously including whether they prefer an evening farm beer or morning farm coffee!!
