Darina Allen – The Organic Centre fund-raising event 28th June
Darina Allen will cook at The Organic Centre on a fund-raising event on Sunday 28th June from 2-5pm.
“As each new year passes and our food becomes ever more processed, I become increasingly convinced of the necessity to grow some of our own food.
I find myself coaxing and nagging and cajoling anyone who comes within ear shot, to grow something, anything, anywhere, in a window box, on a balcony, in a recycled container, up walls, down walls, on the roof…….
Great if you are fortunate to have a garden or allotment or a farm but in reality, all you need to get started and discover the joy of growing, is some soil or compost, a seed, light, water and a little patience.
I’m so proud to have been a patron of The Organic Centre since the outset – its contribution to horticulture and food education in this country has been immeasurable. They deserve our continuing support.”
