I transformed a field of chest-high grass into an amazing allotment, says Adam Barnes

June 22, 2021

This week on The Dirt, we were joined by British Army paratrooper and allotment enthusiast, Adam Barnes. Adam's allotment featured in the July issue of Grow Your Own magazine and in this episode we got to hear even more about his amazing growing journey.

Also on the show, we heard from Danni (@plot.81 on Instagram) a grower who regularly works with our fantastic pod sponsors, Envii. Danni helpfully answered reader questions sent in on foraging, growing and much more. For more from Envii - give them a follow at @enviiUK or visit
