Welcome to our 2014 programme,
The Organic Centre is probably the best hedge school for self-sufficiency and food empathy (the deeper understanding of food and where it comes from - the theme of the 2013 GIY - Grow-it-yourself - Gathering).

"Spend a day or more at one of the many courses here - discovering wild foods:making stone walls;understanding nutrition, maybe come for their Potato Day 0r the Apple Day - and you come away feeling not just empowered, but distinctly wiser. Something in your head and your heart will have been skilled up by the wise instructors and lecturers, the feeling that the natural world is your ally, your companion, your collaborator." (The McKennas' Guides)

We welcome back our popular seaweed walks and talks and eco-building courses, our gardening courses have been extended with masterclasses on organic weed management and pest and disease control, they are also even more practical and have been revised incorporating feedback from participants. All the favourite courses on growing in polytunnels, cheese making, fermentation sourdough baking are back.

Watch out for our family programme and week-long summer camps for children in August.

We hope you like our programme of courses and the selection of our organic seeds and we ask for your continued support of out work.
