For Peat's Sake online course

About the course

We’re here to help you kick the peat habit and be peat-free, and proud! It’s not difficult, and in this free short course we’ll cover everything you need to know for successful peat-free growing.

Over 95% of the UK’s peat bogs have become degraded or destroyed. This not only wipes out rare ecosystems – wild areas which are home to a wealth of plants, birds and insects – but also rapidly increases our carbon emissions.

  • The disastrous impacts of harvesting our natural peat landscapes.
  • How modern alternatives to peat are now plentiful and effective.
  • How to get the best out of peat-free products in your own growing.


This short free online course takes around 30mins to complete.
