We seek to explain, promote and encourage the lasting benefits of organic growing, sustainable living, and gardening for the health and wellbeing of individuals and the environment.

Workshops and events

Our regular programme includes masterclasses and practical skills sessions delivered on-site in our ‘green classroom' at our organic garden in Ryton.

We also offer flexible, distance learning with instructor-led webinar courses on a wide range of organic growing subjects, and talks and events delivered by our trusted partner organisations.

Our sessions are aimed at all levels and focus on engaging and inspiring you, alongside like-minded growers. You can quiz our experts to find the answers to your specific growing questions.

Online learning

Our online, self-guided courses offer the flexibility to undertake our organic growing courses at a place and time that best suits you.

Courses are created and presented by our organic horticultural experts and are delivered through easy-to-follow videos, topic workbooks with interactive quizzes and practical activities to apply in your own growing space.

Our online courses are not time limited allowing you to complete the content at your own pace and return as often as you would like to review the videos and practical advice.

Bespoke training

We also offer bespoke sessions at a location of your choice. If you would like to enquire about booking a private training session at your location, then please contact us. We have many years of experience in providing bespoke sessions and programmes including train-the-trainer options suited to your specific needs. We would be happy to discuss this with you.

We look forward to welcoming you on one of our workshops and events!
