Since opening its doors to the public in July 1986, Garden Organic has been welcoming visitors to Ryton Organic Gardens, on the outskirts of Coventry, to learn about the virtues of organic growing. The demonstration gardens were the brainchild of the charity’s founder, Lawrence D Hills, who was keen to show ordinary growers that organic gardening was achievable by anyone within any size of growing space.
The gardens are spread over eight acres, and include individual themed gardens such as the Paradise Garden – created in memory of well-known organic grower, Geoff Hamilton – the Exotic Garden and the Allotment Garden. Ryton Organic Gardens is also the home of Garden Organic’s pioneering seed conservation work, the Heritage Seed Library.
