On this week's show we chat with Mark Ridsdill Smith from Vertical Veg about the benefits and opportunities of growing at home, no matter how small the space.Vertical Veg inspires and supports growing food in containers.  Mark helps people to transform a small space - like a balcony or patio - into an abundant container garden, filled with herbs, fruit, veg, beauty and life.The idea for Vertical Veg came after cycling round London one day, noticing the many empty balconies, rooftops and other concrete spaces.Mark imagined how wonderful it would be if more of them were filled with pots of herbs, edible flowers and fruit.  And the joy it could give to people tending them and to those walking by.
Mark started Vertical Veg to:
- Offer practical advice on everything from easy first growing projects, to how to create a highly productive edible garden in containers.
- Find solutions to help you overcome the specific challenges of growing in the city – like lack of space & sun.
- Pioneer – working with others – how to grow food abundantly and sustainably in containers using local, natural resources. And how to help feed our cities,  change our food culture and improve our wellbeing.Mark is inspired by how growing at home offers a window through which we can reconnect with nature, the local community and fresh, seasonal food.
Mark’s NEW BOOK “The Vertical Veg Guide to Container Growing” is available to order here - https://www.verticalveg.org.uk/book/

The Eco & Community Benefits of Container Growing At Home

On this week's show we chat with Eileen Willett and Nancy Zeffman from Cucumber Clothing about Launching And Running A Sustainable Clothing Wear Brand.Cucumber Clothing make luxurious women’s leisurewear and sleepwear using the latest technical fabrics that have built-in anti-microbials, a baby-soft hand feel, are breathable, anti-crush with stay fresh, easy-care technology.Designs are timeless and seasonless. All fabrics last up to six times longer than cotton.Designed to be worn next to the skin and year-round, we are a woman’s foundation pieces. Multifunctional pieces that segue from bed to beach to boardroom without the need for washing or ironing. Nothing retains sweat or odours; garments need to be washed only when physically dirty (cool temperature, no iron, no tumble drying) less energy used in the lifetime of each piece.Sustainability runs through Cucumber from the fabrics, to the suppliers we work with and our working practices - everything, save our fabrics, is designed, graded, manufactured and warehoused within a five-mile radius: trims and extras are sourced in England, packing bags are 100% biodegradable; recycled and recyclable swing tags, postal sacks and packing tape. Orders are sent out using Royal Mail (no extra vehicles on the road).We are constantly searching new ways to lessen our carbon footprint with every collection – reassessing the meaning of the word ‘new’ with our Loan to Own scheme (basically a try before you buy scheme so that you can rent our pieces for up to 3 months) and return if you don't want them anymore. All returns are then sold as preloved pieces.

Once he felt the support and connection to this energy, it was like coming home to himself again.This 4,000 year healing art helps us take more control of our health and wellbeing (in mind and body) & keep our immune system strong which feels greatly needed these days.When we connect with the Universal Energy/Qi, this field of all possibilities, we can clear many health issues, transform negative emotions, re-balance body and mind & feel nourished on many levels.Qigong helps benefit the body, mind and spirit by rebalancing our energy system and clearing blocks helping the energy to flow more freely.It is suitable and adaptable for all levels of fitness and all ages.

Alessandro had an adventurous childhood - an Italian boy, having lived in multiple countries including Indonesia where he was born, Italy (Sardinia), Tanzania, Yugoslavia, Turkey, Morocco & the UK all by the age of 9.

From a young age, he was always searching for deeper meaning in life, often feeling disconnected and uninspired perhaps due to all the travel and living in so many different countries.

He discovered Qigong by chance over 35 years ago, a study of human nature, energy & connection to source or the Universal energy/Qi.

This Qi/Energy is what keeps all of nature alive and thriving, and is always present. Once he felt the support and connection to this energy, it was like coming home to himself again.

This 4,000 year healing art helps us take more control of our health and wellbeing (in mind and body) & keep our immune system strong which feels greatly needed these days.

When we connect with the Universal Energy/Qi, this field of all possibilities, we can clear many health issues, transform negative emotions, re-balance body and mind & feel nourished on many levels.

Qigong helps benefit the body, mind and spirit by rebalancing our energy system and clearing blocks helping the energy to flow more freely.

It is suitable and adaptable for all levels of fitness and all ages.
