Organic growing

Join Anton Rosenfeld from Garden Organic to learn about growing organically.

Organic growing considers not just the plant you are growing, but how it interacts with the soil, its surroundings and the wider environment.

Garden Organic has spent over 60 years researching sustainable ways to grow. In this talk they will share their experiences, including practical tips for sustainable soil care, promoting biodiversity and avoiding chemicals.
