Why organic?

A garden is a shared space and we want to welcome wildlife in. Gardening organically is one easy way to help. It means a few simple changes in the way we design and manage outdoor spaces to make the most of the natural (and free) resources at our disposal. Our understanding of the effects of mycorrhizal fungi, beneficial predators, pollinating insects and the recycling of organic matter will help you to spend less and get more from your garden. Remember, for every problem there is an organic solution and we think organic gardens look the best too!
