What you'll do

We will provide a unique event for you and reconnect you with the food we grow to the food you eat . We will help educate you to the way we grow food combining the old ways with the new . Learn to Grow with Us Together at OURganic Gardens . Started by owners Joanne and Milo Butler in 2009 OURganic Gardens has become an outdoor green space focused on food, sustainability, and horticulture We strive to provide all walks of the community with a sense of ‘connection’ to where our food comes from, to encourage them to become environmentally aware, and to live more self-sufficiently. As well as planned these workshops we also cater educational packages to provide groups and businesses with the knowledge they need to make responsible decisions about how they live their lives, while surrounded by the beauty and wonder of the natural landscape OURganic Gardens has to offer.
