Carraig Dulra , Glenealy, Co Wicklow

Do you want to learn how to grow food for your family?  Gardening, even in a small patch or a window box, saves money, gives you access to fresher, healthier food, connects you with nature, and eases the burdeon on the environment from our food production and distribution systems. 
For those new to gardening, we have a one-day course Organic Food Growing for the Complete Beginner, next week on Saturday 21st February (also offered 3 other dates later in the year).   For more information or to book (90), click here or ring The Organic Centre (071) 985 4338.

Or if you'd like to get more in-depth experience, our practical Complete Organic Garden course runs one day a month, following the garden through the seasons.  The first session is this coming Wednesday, 18th February.   You can book as many or as few sessions as you like.  The cost is 90 for one session, with significant discounts if you take 5 sessions (375) or all 10 sessions (720).  Organic Centre Friends get a further 10% discount, and The Organic Centre have also agreed to allow payment by instalment for those who might have difficulty paying for a block of sessions all at once.  For more details, click here or ring The Organic Centre (071) 985 4338.
