New to growing your own?
It is with sadness that we report the passing of founder member and Life president of Heart of England Organic Group, John Sargent, who died peacefully at home at the end of September, just a few days short of his 102nd birthday. Read more . . .
Heart of England Organic Group is a local group for people interested in the environment, organic growing and food, covering Coventry, Warwickshire, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield and the surrounding areas.
We organise a wide-ranging and interesting programme of talks and visits on subjects connected with food, health, environment and organic lifestyle.
Are you concerned about what you are eating?
The industrialisation of food production has resulted in a long series of food scares. No one seems to know what is safe to eat.
Fortunately, there is a solution. Organic food is grown to strict regulations, defined in law, which ban synthethic chemicals and genetically modified organisms, not only on the farm, but throughout processing, distribution and sale. Chemical-free agriculture also makes a very positive contribution to wildlife and the environment.
With only 1% of British farms organic, most organic food has to be imported, adding to food-miles and cost. You can help to change this by growing your own organic fruit and vegetables.
Even if you dont grow things to eat, going organic in your garden will help to create a poison-free haven for wildlife and your family.
If you are new to the idea of organic food, or would like support and help from local people who care about their health and the health of the planet, you will find a wealth of advice and ideas if you join Heart of England Organic Group.Join Heart of England Organic Group
