Radar's Patch - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2010

In this 2010 series, comedian Te Radar ditches his lawnmower to take on the challenge of transforming an overgrown quarter acre lawn into a lush garden bursting with produce. Using recycled material and organic methods, Te Radar has six months to hit his goals — including making a profit from selling his food. "You can almost smell the fertility in the air," he claims in this first episode, filmed in Riverhead north of Auckland. In true Te Radar style, comedy ensues. He forgets to build a gate for a fence, and heads to a neighbour's shed for help turning an old reel mower into a mulcher. 

Radar, I think the world is a throwaway world now. If it breaks down, you throw it out.
– Te Radar's neighbour, on modern urges to buy new instead of fixing what we already have
