    Danni - @Plot.81 - Talking Allotment Growing, Foraging & Making Growing Cool

    Danni, known as @plot.81 on instagram has really made her allotment a growing space that she enjoys being in. With a skate ramp, bird feeding and an outdoor bath all among the growing of abundant food and beautiful other plants.
    Her knowledge of foraging is also incredible, and so we were super excited to have Danni on the podcast.
