Join us for this short online talk to find out how organic growing benefits your garden, wildlife and the planet.

What you will learn

• What we mean by organic and the organic principles.

• The best ways to improve your soil health.

• How to recognise beneficial creatures and boost diversity in your garden.

• Discover ways to meet common challenges without resorting to toxic chemicals.

Session overview:

Many people have an idea of what organic means but may be unsure of how to put these principles into practice in their everyday growing. Organic growing is more than just ‘growing without toxic chemicals’, it’s a holistic approach that works with natural processes to create an environment where your crops will thrive.

By the end of this talk, you’ll have a better understanding of working with nature rather than trying to fight it, so you can enjoy your growing space and minimise your impact.

It’s rare to leave a course feeling inspired, excited and having learned so much that you want to get to work straight away!
