Stories from Perch Hill and Nurturing Sea Life with Adam Nicolson - Episode 32


We’re breaking convention on ‘grow, cook, eat, arrange’ this week as Sarah steps aside from hosting duties - Arthur is joined by a fellow Perch Hill resident, Sarah’s other half, and thoroughly accomplished writer, Adam Nicolson.

In a conversation ranging from profound environmental issues to more absurd incidents like the ‘big sheep crisis’, this episode is equal parts hilarious and inspiring to those of us looking to build a world of wondrous sea life.

Adam describes life on Perch Hill, fascinating facts about the inhabitants of rock pools, and how we can help bring biodiversity back to our shores - all with the same passionate and eclectic vernacular that you’ll find in his latest book: ‘The Sea Is Not Made of Water: Life Between the Tides’.

In this episode, discover:

  • Fascinating stories from the early days of Perch Hill
  • Marvellous creatures that can be found in rock pools
  • How we can help nurture sealife with your very own rock pools
  • The peculiar story behind Sarah & Arthur’s ‘Big Sheep Crisis’
