Mecurio visits Docklands’ garden

Paul Mecurio made a visit to Docklands’ community garden on February 10 to film a segment for his television show, ‘Mecurio’s Menu’.

Mr Mecurio, who hosts a lifestyle cooking and travel show on Channel Seven, interviewed Urban Reforestation founder Emily Ballantyne-Brodie about the garden and the produce it grows.

Mr Mecurio said it was great to be able to film the garden as part of his work.

“To me it’s about getting excited about it and feeling inspired … a lot of people will be inspired and want to create their own community garden and, hopefully, people in Docklands will see it and get involved in this one,” Mr Mercurio said.

The produce of the garden will not be featured in the cooking section of the episode as it was filmed prior to the show’s visit to Victoria Harbour.

“If I was here yesterday I would have loved to have cooked with the produce or taken some herbs and things over to the restaurant where I cooked,” Mr Mecurio said.

Ms Ballantyne-Brodie said she was very excited when she found out they wanted to film the garden.

The show, which is in its third season, will feature the garden in its 10th episode, which will air in April or May.
