Most people think of organic growing as ‘growing without chemicals’ but there is so much more to it than that. Organic growing makes the best use of resources by working with and understanding natural processes and plans ahead to make your soil and environment a place where crops will thrive.

Our new evening course covers the thinking behind organic growing, giving you confidence in the techniques and understanding on how to create a healthy and productive growing area.

What we will cover:
- Gain an overview of the organic principles;
- Learn the best ways to improve your soil to grow healthy plants



- Learn about some of the common challenges and how to manage
them without using chemicals
- Learn how to recognise beneficial creatures and how to attract
them into your growing space
- See organic food growing principles in practice with a tour of
Ryton Organic Gardens.
