Flahavan's sponsors GIY Book and Fundit Campaign

GIY has announced details of its brand new grow/cookbook, called GROW, COOK, EAT (A GIY guide to growing and cooking your own food) which is sponsored by Flahavans and will be published by GIY in October.  The book is a no-nonsense month-by-month guide to growing your own food, written by GIY founder Michael Kelly, and featuring seasonal contributions from over 35 of GIY's favourite chefs, cooks and growers including Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, Dylan McGrath, Darina Allen, Neven Maguire, Marian Keyes, Rachel Allen, Clodagh McKenna, Derval O'Rourke, Donal Skehan, Mark Diacono, Joy Larkcom and Alys Fowler.  Our own Mary Flahavan is also contributing a seasonal recipe to the book, featuring our famous progress oatlets. The book is being self-published by GIY, and all proceeds will be used to fund GROW HQ, the organisation's ground-breaking national food education centre which will open in Waterford in 2015.  You can read more about the book here.  
In tandem, GIY has also launched a national crowdfunding Fundit campaign, with a signed copy of the book as the entry level reward.  GIY aims to raise €20,000 towards the GROW HQ project from the campaign and is offering a range of exciting rewards costing from €30 - from a green sod on the roof of GROW HQ, tickets to the exclusive book launch party, your name on the Living Wall at GROW HQ or even your chance to experience the 'good life' for real with an exclusive visit to Michael Kelly's garden! Support the campaign and check out the rewards at http://fundit.ie/project/giys-grow-hq

"This book is a growing and cookery bible rolled into one, written by the best in the business.”
