Grow Cook Eat: Sustainable Wicklow business features on popular RTÉ show
Wicklow will feature on the third episode of the popular RTÉ show Grow Cook Eat tomorrow.
It follows presenter and GIY Head of Community Development Karen O’Donohoe as she heads to the Garden County to draw inspiration from the commercial operation at O’Hanlon Herbs, who have been working with fresh herbs for 30 years and are moving to 100% compostable packaging.
A Dubliner with no farming or nursery-keeping background, Tom O’Hanlon stood out among his peers studying horticulture at Warrenstown College in Co Meath and his business now supplies the biggest supermarkets across Ireland.
The show is anchored at the home of GIY, at Grow HQ in Waterford city and each week the TV show also sees presenters Michael Kelly and Karen O’Donohoe travel to meet and visit expert food producers, chefs, and community food growing projects all across the country, plus delicious menu ideas are shared every week by Chef Katie Sanderson.
GROW COOK EAT airs each Wednesday evening at 8.30 pm on RTE until April 24th; the show is sponsored by Bord Bia and StopFoodWaste.ie. For further details, the veg growing guides, lots of extra recipes and more info on each episode visit http://growcookeat.ie/
