  • Mission statement

    Garden Organic promotes organic gardening. Our focus is on individual, community and school gardens throughout the UK. We use innovative practices to inspire and encourage people to grow organically, collaborating with others to achieve the greatest impact.

    Gardening and growing offers great benefits for all - benefits for the environment and sustainability, for peoples' health and well-being, for food security and for building stronger communities.

    People's growing space be it a garden, a windowsill, an allotment, a school of community garden, is valued as an important space for learning, for reconnecting with nature and the food we eat, and a place where people can take practical actions to adopt sustainable lifestyles.

    Using the organic approach to gardening and growing, which Garden Organic has been promoting for over 50 years, we are well placed to ensure that these benefits can be achieved and enjoyed to their full potential.
