From bean pods to podcasts – the first World War Zoo gardens blog podcast

Matt Clarke of Kernow Pods dropped into Newquay Zoo the other day to catch up with how our World War Zoo gardens project was growing , recreating a wartime zoo keeper’s dig for victory garden. 

The iconic "dig for victory" poster of 1941 displayed in our World War Zoo gardens at Newquay Zoo amid growing food for the animals.

Radio was much used by early garden celebrities such as Mr. Middleton to encourage people involved on the “Kitchen Front” and “Dig For Victory ” campaign. So we thought it only right that we carried on this tradition with modern media! 

  A freelance radio journalist and podcaster, Matt Clarke recorded our first podcast blog for the project here – World War zoo veg talk June 2010 Newquay Zoo / KernowPod . We hope you enjoy it!
