Grow Your Own Veg - Netflix
Grow Your Own Veg was broadcast on BBC2 on Friday nights. Over six episodes, Carol Klein took novice veg growers through a gardening year to learn how to get the best out of their space from the RHS experts at Rosemoor and Harlow Carr. Carol rediscovered the joys of growing organic veg for the first time in 20 years. She also helped a first-time gardener and her family see just how easy it is to grow their own, and showed that whatever size your patch - from a balcony to a suburban back garden - anyone can grow veg. Salads, roots, brassicas and legumes were all explored with a sumptuous harvest in every programme.
Runtime: 30 minutes
Grow Your Own Veg - Transition town - Netflix
The terms transition town, transition initiative and transition model refer to grassroot community projects that aim to increase self-sufficiency to reduce the potential effects of peak oil, climate destruction, and economic instability. The Transition Network, founded in 2006, inspired the creation of many of the projects. A number of the groups are officially registered with the Transition Network. The first initiative to use the name was Transition Town Totnes, located in the United Kingdom. Transition initiatives have been started in locations around the world, with many located in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and Australia.
