Homegrown Revolution with James Wong
14:30 - 15:30
Demonstration / Talk / Lecture
Offering a light-hearted, dynamic and innovative alternative to conventional 'spuds and sprouts' gardening talks, in this all new 'Homegrown Revolution' lecture James reveals how growing your own can be so much more cutting edge than you might think. Break free of the 'grow your own' time-warp and discover incredible edibles far more exciting than anything you would ever think could be grown on our blustery North Atlantic island. From saffron and wasabi, to sweet potatoes and even homegrown green tea, up to 3,000 edible crops can be grown extremely easily in the UK climate. Yet as most books focus on the same tiny handful of staid 'dig for victory' favourites, James has set out on a mission to reveal the other 99% of weird and wonderful flavours that us Brits are missing out on.
