WE WILL SOON BE MOVING TO A NEW WEBSITE! www.tg4.ie/garraiglas
Our latest content from the new 4th series will all be found there.

Garraí Glas is a series about growing your own food, using traditional and organic methods. Síle Nic Chonaonaigh has travelled all around Ireland for three summers now, learning more about growing each year. We’d all like to get a little closer to being self-sufficient, and Garraí Glas shows that you don’t have to spend hours a day working your heart out to do that. All you need is a small patch in the back garden that you spend ten minutes a day looking after.

Join us on the journey and meet growers who inspire and experts advisors like Klaus Laitenberger, Jim McNamara, Gaby Wieland, Kay Synott and Hans Wieland.
