Garden tour
Our garden tour will demonstrate how to establish and maintain an organic garden and reveal the organic principles we use such as companion planting, crop rotation, soil management, composting, pest and disease management and seasonal activities. There will be plenty of time with the garden team to ask your organic growing questions and time to explore the garden for yourself.
