Episode 8

Danny (Lawsons Market Garden) – Permaculture Market Gardening, Building from scratch, Willow Coppicing & Working with Nature

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 are delighted to have a good friend of ours on Danny from Lawsons Market Garden. We talk about:

  • How it all began and skills from retail that led to market gardening
  • What permaculture is and how it has shaped Lawsons Market Garden
  • How working with nature has benefits both personally and commercially
  • Perennial crops and establishing a working veg box scheme
  • Building with recycled materials
  • What permaculture means to Danny
  • How to walk the line between permaculture and producing enough veg each week
  • Willow Coppicing and the powers of the willow tree
  • Chicken Composting


Plus the all important quick-fire questions of course…. Will Danny be #teambeer or #teamcoffee ???


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!!
