Organic Garlic and Onion sets for overwintering now available in our shop or online!
Please note that our course Plan a year’s harvest – Start now is re-scheduled for Sunday 30th October 2016!
We want to inspire visitors and the general public to grow food organically and live sustainably. We demonstrate that through our gardens and polytunnels and offer educational courses, workshops, guided tours and part-time and full-time courses.
The Organic Centre was established in 1995 as a non profit making company with charitable status (CHY 11547).
We are located on a 19 acres site in Rossinver, Co. Leitrim and operate from an ecologically designed building with a grass roof winning the An Taisce award for “most appropriate building located in the countryside”.
Recent awards include the County Enterprise Award 2011 for “Contribution to the Community”, the Bord Bia National Food Award 2011 “Highly Commended Organic Tomatoes” and the Euro-Toques Award 2012 “For outstanding contribution to Irish Food through training and education”. We have received the Bridgestone and McKennas “Best in Ireland” award for many years and are now a “Discover Primary Science and Maths” centre. Read More
