Garden Organic update

Jul 15, 2018

The recent controversial decisions about the future of the Garden Organic site at Ryton have caused concern to many. 

For those of you unable to attend their AGM here are two audio recordings for you to listen to.

You can download the Q&A session that runs to 57 minutes, including an introduction, here: http://bit.ly/2IWYFbD

You can also download the recording of the complete AGM that runs to 1hr 35mins here: http://bit.ly/2IEsaM2

A new group called Friends of Ryton Organic Gardens (FROG) has been formed to work with whoever takes them on.

The land, gardens and agricultural buildings have been registered as an Asset of Community Value. We don’t yet know whether Garden Organic has opposed this.

If you would like to, join FROG’s Facebook group or email for more information.

BOO! And other lessons on the unexpected

By Julia Taliesin “So, what made you decide to do this?” Is a common question I get when I tell people about WWOOFing (and something I ask my fellow WWOOFers). For me, it was a breakup and job loss that happened one after the other almost a year ago. Talk about a jump...
