Joy Larkcom, gardener and author: "Again and again in recent years I've met people whose lives have been transformed by 'discovering' gardening, and the joy of growing their own. But there is, of course, a lot to learn, and one never stops learning. The Organic Centre in Rossinver has been a key to opening doors to a whole range of skills for individuals, schools and the community at large. You can't do better than to take advantage of this offer to enable them to expand and continue their inspiring work."
We have an outstanding cafe, catering and production facility for a food entrepreneur available. Call or come see us!

Preview of our 2015 programme
The Organic Centre celebrates its 20th Anniversary next year and we are planning a few fundraising events throughout the year.

Our new programme will see the return of our famous "Good life course" with Hans and Gaby Wieland over the August Bankholiday weekend. We will for the first time collaborate with Mud and Wood and host a clay oven workshop. From March to October we invite to GIY Sunday afternoons at The Organic Centre for all the GIY members in the North West.Our annual events will be part of our anniversary programme; Potato Day on March 14th, Garden Party with Neven Maguire July 12th and Apple Day and Harvest Festival 27th of September.
All the favourite courses on growing in polytunnels, organic gardening for beginners, cheese making, fermentation, sourdough baking, beer making and basket making are back.We will officially start again on February 21st with courses on fermenting foods and starting a garden from scratch.
In the meantime we do welcome your feedback and suggestions and thank all our course participants and visitors for your support. We are doing it for you!
"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)
Watch out for our family programme and week-long summer camps for children in August.
We hope you will like our new programme of courses and the selection of our organic seeds and we ask for your continued support of out work.
The new courses will be on the website from mid November and the printed programme and seed catalogue will be available from early December.
