GIY’s Michael Kelly and Dig in Diner’s Muireann Ní Chíobháin have joined forces with award-winning illustrator Fatti Burke to launch a riotous, fully-illustrated kid’s allmanac guide to growing and cooking food through the year. It is called ‘GIY’s Know-it-Allmanac’ and is a month-by-month guide to growing, cooking and eating food for all the family. To celebrate the launch of the brand new book, GIY have launched a nationwide competition for all primary schools, with a chance to win their very own food growing garden for their school. GIY is looking for Ireland’s biggest ‘Know-it-All’. All of the quiz questions are based around your knowledge of food and growing food and Primary Schools can enter round 1of the competition online from now until October 10th 2019. The finalists will be invited to the official launch of the new ‘GIY’s Know-it-Allmanac’ book at Eason’s on O’Connell Street, Dublin at 11 am on October 16th to take part in a head to head challenge. Ireland’s biggest ‘Know-it-All’ will be honoured with the title on the day and will walk away with a school garden to the value of €1,000 along with a copy of the book for the class and lots of other school goodies.
The competition is open to all primary schools in Ireland; students can enter with a team of up to 4 students, so it’s time to pick your team name and get your teacher to enter using the link https://giy.ie/get-involved/grow-at-school/. GIY’s Know-it-Allmanac is published by GIY. It is a 104-page hardback and it is filled with fun, colourful, tongue-in-cheek, slightly irreverent, bursting with fun characters, information, trivia and loads of food knowledge. It is available in October from all good book shops along with the website www.giy.ie and is priced at €25.00
