The Organic Centre was founded in 1995 by local organic growers, farmers and supporters, and was the brainchild of Rod Alston. Developed on a 19 acre green field site at the foot of limestone hills beside Lough Melvin, the Centre operates in fairly challenging conditions, and is a clear demonstration that organic growing is something we can all do.
The Centre was to developed to encourage organic production, the sustainable and ecological use of land, and to promote education and inclusion. We started with 6 weekend courses and have worked hard to ensure that we stay up to date and offer people high quality information and training.
The Centre is 25 years old next year and we will be celebrating the people, who helped set up, support and develop the centre over the last 25 years. We recognise their effort and energy, and appreciate their ingenuity. There is nowhere else quite like it.
