Garden Organic welcomed over 160 enthusiastic volunteers to the National Masters Conference at Ryton Gardens on the 30 June 2012.
Master Gardeners, Master Composters, and other wonderful champions came from across the UK to celebrate the ways they help people grow their own food and get composting.
Garden Organic’s Chief Executive Myles Bremner thanked every volunteer for their energetic and innovative outreach supporting people in their community.
We’re already thinking about next year’s conference on the 21st September 2013! Please click here to get in touch with your ideas. In the meantime, this is what delegates said:
Very good choice of workshops. Too many good ones to pick!
Very efficient organisation. Lovely happy atmosphere.
Impressive control of weather!
Boosted my self-esteem in the role. Really inspirational
Thank you for the most brilliant and supportive day of education, resources and camaraderie.
Our huge thank to everyone involved in putting together this busy day – all the speakers, sponsors, technicians, workshop guides, organisers, and of course – volunteers from Garden Organic programmes and beyond.
