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.

Why organic gardening matters
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. It is also a place where we can learn and reconnect with nature and the food we eat and where we can take practical action to adopt sustainable lifestyles.
Using the organic approach to gardening and growing, which Garden Organic has been promoting for over 50 years, will ensure that these benefits can be achieved and enjoyed to their full potential.

Best organic app All around best app. Love this app, no internet connection required. Yea
Not enough detail I found the information quite sparse. For instance one thing I really want to know about various veg is what pests to look out for.
Recommended I like this, well written, great pics - looking forward to getting out in the garden when the weather improves!
Definitely one to get If you're into your organic vegetables I reckon this is worth getting. The info is nicely presented and written by people who know their stuff.
Kept crashing.. Couldn't get past the intro screen on a top end phone. Crashed and closed each time.
No information where you would expect information. As in go in to the header 'when to grow' and literally doesn't even tell you when to freaking grow.
