Organic Week

Get ready people, and try to contain your excitement, because 4th - 12th September is Organic Week 2004!

Cynics may dismiss this as just a week-long PR exercise for the Soil Association, the chief organisers of this, "the UK's biggest celebration of organic food, drink and sustainable living."

I don't have any problems with the Soil Association. From my point of view, they are a registered charity working hard to raise standards of organic farming, to promote organic living, and to educate people about sustainability, pesticides, GM crops and the like. All very positive.

For me, the most interesting part about Organic Week is the possibility of getting to visit an organic farm:

"Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th September is Organic Experience Weekend - many organic farms across the country will be opening their gates for barbecues, farm trails and other activities."

There will also be many discounts on organic food everywhere. Check the website for details.
