The festival, called GIY Food Matters, which is part of Waterford's Harvest weekend features a programme of talks, garden walks, demos workshops as well as a very special ticketed evening event.

The weekend's celebrations kick off on Friday 7th September with the launch of a brand-new Chef Series at HQ called homegrown.
