Garden Organic has sent out exciting questionnaires this week to the Master Gardeners and the lovely people they mentor to grow their own food.
We’re working with Coventry University to monitor and evaluate the health, social and environmental impacts of the programme.
It’s very exciting with intriguing questions – and already intriguing findings from our autumn 2011 and spring 12 research. We’re announcing the findings in a few weeks…
Look out for your questionnaire in the post if:
- you’re a householder registered by your Master Gardener between May 2011 and October 2011
- a Master Gardener trained in autumn 2011.
We’re also planning interviews and discussion groups during September and October 2012.
Volunteers recruited, trained, and supported by Garden Organic to mentor registered ‘householders’ – individuals, couples and families wanting to start growing food or grow more at home and on communal land.
We’re the UK’s leading organic growing charity, dedicated to promoting organic gardening in homes, communities and schools.
