Registered Charity No: 298104 (England & Wales), SC046767 (Scotland).
Garden Organic is the UK’s leading organic growing charity and has been at the forefront of the organic movement for 60 years. Our work enables and supports people to get involved in organic growing, through research, education, demonstration gardens and practical projects, and through lobbying and campaigning on issues vital to people and the environment.
At our headquarters in Ryton, Warwickshire, we manage 10 acres of organic demonstration gardens welcoming thousands of visitors each year. Garden Organic is also home to the Heritage Seed Library (HSL), a unique living collection of over 800 endangered vegetable varieties, safeguarded from extinction and shared with growers nationwide.
Our outreach work includes our education programme, working with schools to help young people learn about organic growing, healthy eating and the environment; and our volunteer network programmes, which engage expert volunteers to mentor and support novice growers. We also campaign on critical environmental issues, such as pesticide use, the decline of bees and threats to biodiversity.
Our work extends right across the UK, using organic food growing to bring about positive change.
By leaving a legacy to Garden Organic you can make a real and lasting impact, helping to promote organic growing and enabling people to lead healthier, more sustainable lives - now and for generations to come.
Garden Organic is the working name of the Henry Doubleday Research Association
