Organic gardeners focus their energy into increasing the natural health of their soil, choosing appropriate plant varieties, and working with nature to produce a healthy and productive garden.


The organic approach to growing recognises that all living things depend on one another, from pests and soil to flowers and wildlife, all are inter-related - even us.

We are all responsible for how we treat the soil and the environment, to safeguard it for future generations. 

By using organic methods for your kitchen garden, allotment, or community garden, you can 'grow your own' free from pesticides in healthy soil maintained with compost from recycled materials.

Gardening and growing offers great benefits for us all – benefits for the environment, for people’s health and wellbeing, for food security and for building stronger communities. Our outdoor growing space, be it the private garden, community garden, allotment, school garden, or just a small space nearby, is a place where we relax and recharge both spiritually and physically.

    I think this has some great information, and is very well presented. Easy to refer to in the garden, and much better than lugging around books.

    As a member of Garden Organic, I read about this app, and others in the series, in the Organic Way magazine. Being accustomed to the good quality of Garden Organic publications, I had no hesitation in loading these paid-for apps. First, a general point.
