We believe that the best option to protect our food supplies, environment, health and wellbeing is to use organic growing methods. These harness the natural cycles and processes that promote plant growth.
Our education programmes help teachers and school professionals to develop gardening projects that teach children where their food comes from, develop their scientific and environmental awareness and encourage them to eat more fruit and vegetables.
Ryton Organic Gardens is the home of Garden Organic, including our world-renowned Heritage Seed Library. Our brand new organic demonstration garden is now open to members and visitors for pre-booked tours. You may also like to join us for one of our online webinars or workshops set within our outdoor classroom within the beautiful and inspirational surroundings of our garden. We'll teach you all the techniques you need to help your own organic growing flourish.
Our Heritage Seed Library, works tirelessly to conserve the UK's vegetable heritage, protecting our rich organic diversity for future generations. We undertake targeted activities to encourage seed conservation.
Gardening and growing is good for us all. It is good for our physical and mental health, for reducing stress and helping to tackle challenging behaviour. It can also help to build confidence and develop a range of employability skills.
