Rose Welly Week!

21st-27th April 2008 sees GARDEN ORGANIC launch their national awareness campaign for a sensible approach to organic farming and gardening.

Please get in touch with organisers of this campaign to enquire about current activities

Where the year differs from the current - Please, confirm the dates of the campaign with the main official website.Our Dates for your Diary page will contain more uptodate information on a month to month basis.We do strive to keep on top of updating our campaign forum threads and apologise if you happen to come across one that needs attention !

The official website is home to a wealth of information including ways you can become involved in raising funds for educational resources.

From an awareness point of view ... we wanted to give you a few ideas on how you can help out .. by letting people know of the smaller everyday things they can do ..

A few ideas we have come up with to support this awareness is ...

This spring turn part of your outdoor play area into a mini allotment‚€¶
with lots of novel twists of course

Find the largest Welly you can!
  • Drill a few holes through the sole (so that water can drain out!)
  • Put a couple of large hand fulls of small pebbles into the bottom.
  • Then a hanful of sand
  • Then fill to about 1‚€Ě below the top of the welly with compost soil.
  • Plant 3 or 4 pea seeds into the top.
  • Place a small wooden trellis/ bean cane into the soil, so the shoots can wind themselves up and around it.
  • Use the produce at snack time - make sure you remind the children that they are eating veg that they grew!!
Read the information on Organic gardening and print out a few pointers to give to your parents.

If your holding your own fundraiser - use their great advertising posters & printable stickers available on this page ~ Downloadable PDF resources

HOW TO - Fun and practical fact sheets on a variety of green topics.

let us all know what you found useful!

Bookmark the What's New' page and keep up to date with all the latest additions.

Supporting the forum thank you for every generosity, without visitor donations there wouldn't be a forum xx
