Take a look round our beautiful site, take part in shared work tasks and drop-in learning.

Group gardening activity to learn more about how we grow food at our site, 12-4pm. Celebrate a different seasonal vegetable, our very own ‘sagra’ calendar. ‘Sagra’ can be a celebration of a certain dish or product, of a vegetable or fruit, a wine, a type of preparation. In this way abundance of a certain crop at our growing site is celebrated and shared! Site tour in the afternoon. Skillshares on different aspects of our growing work, 2pm-3pm. Drop by at any time or stay for the day. We break for lunch between 1.30pm-2pm usually with lunch prepared from seasonal produce (for a donation) – or bring your own packed lunch. Open Days at Organiclea’s growing site are always the last Sunday of the month, 12-4pm.
