Hi

My name is Ian and I work fro a youth website called SpunOut.ie and I need a little bit of help.

I've been trying to find someone to interview in relation to growing your own fruit and veg. Does anyone know someone with a lesser commercial interest that would be willing to do a short video interview on the importance of growing your own fruit and veg while maybe showing some basic DIY tips etc.

It will be used to encourage young people to basically grow their own fruit and veg. The video would go up on SpunOut.ie in the healthy eating section. http://www.spunout.ie/health/Healthy-body/Healthy-eating/Healthy-eating

Basically looking for someone to talk about how good it is to grow your own spuds to say. The pro's for it then showing some basic tips to get started. We can not directly promote an organisation so that's why I'm looking for someone who may have a 'lesser commercial' approach to it.

It's generally encouraging young people (ie students) that it can not only be healthier to grow your own fruit and veg but also cheaper in the long run, not to mention the self satisfaction.

Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction.

Thank you very much.

Hi Ian,
You could try the Nano Nagle centre in Killavullen Co. Cork. They have an organic farm and do courses on growing your own from time to time.

The Rossinver Organic Centre in Co. Leitrim would be a good place to approach too. http://www.theorganiccentre.ie/ They're EXTREMELY helpful and knowledgeable
