Our heritage varieties are a vital part of our genetic past and, with your help, we can ensure they will be available for future generations. If you would be willing to consider becoming a Variety Champion, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Who we are and what we do

Our charity brings together thousands of people who share a common belief – that organic growing is essential for a healthy and sustainable world. Through campaigning, advice, community work and research, our aim is to get everyone growing ‘the organic way’.
