Whether you are just beginning or an experienced organic grower, there is always more to learn about organic food production. The Organic Centre in Co. Leitrim in Ireland, was set up as charity with the purpose of providing training and information about organic growing and sustainable living. It started from small and humble beginnings in 1995. Now in 2017, it boasts demonstration gardens, numerous pylytunnels, a wetland disposal system, display composting systems, a large orchard and native woodland. The lovely central building with its grassroof, shop and eatery has won awards for its ecological design. Over 100 courses are on offer at The Organic Centre each year!
In this show recorded on 31st March 2017, I chat with Hans Wieland, Training and Marketing Manager, at The Organic Centre about how the centre got started and what it has on offer for people wanting to learn more about organics and sustainable living.
