Pas­sion­ate gar­dener, seed saver and the driv­ing force be­hind a Christchurch so­cial-en­ter­prise food busi­ness (see page 56), Jade Temepara presents a show that is on a mis­sion to change the way we grow, nur­ture and even cook our food. Short seg­ments of­fer prac­ti­cal ad­vice on es­tab­lish­ing and grow­ing a gar­den, visit the gar­dens of oth­ers for in­spi­ra­tion and in­struc­tion and show us healthy quick meals that any­one can cook us­ing what we’ve grown, caught or for­aged. Jade’s en­thu­si­asm springs off the screen as she em­pow­ers us to eat what we have grown our­selves, so be­ing more healthy and sav­ing money. Not only does she make grow­ing food look like some­thing any­one can do, but she makes it look fun, too. To un­der­line the sim­plic­ity of what she’s urg­ing, kids present hands-on seg­ments on top­ics such as how to com­post, how to plant in small ur­ban spa­ces and how to make a pal­let gar­den. Fa­mous friends also pop up through­out the se­ries in­clud­ing for­mer Sal­mo­nella Dub mu­si­cian Tiki Taane and Dr Hinemoa El­der. TW
