Australia set to celebrate organic farming and produce during National Organic Week
In order to encourage a greater appreciation for organic farming practices and a the benefits of eating organic goods, the Centre for Organic Research & Education is hosting ten days of local activities.
National Organic Week first appeared in Australia in 2008 in order to increase consumer demand and confidence in organically-grown produce. By engaging with the general public and the farming community, the Centre for Organic Research & Education aim to build capacity for the conversion of non-organic farming methods across Australia as well as informing food sellers, retailers and restaurateurs about the benefits of biodynamic produce.
From Ovtober 2 to 11, National Organic Week will be hosting a range of activities across the country. Seminars, tastings and product launches will take place in a variety of locations, with several events taking place in Brisbane. The Brisbane Organic Growers society will be celebrating its 40th birthday at the Albion Peace Hall in Windsor, while Ecobotanica Workshops will be hosting organic gardening immersion tutorials.
