National Organic Week 2012

5 - 14 October, 2012

The week will feature locally staged activities designed to increase awareness of the benefits organic produce poses. The growth of interest in the organic movement in Australia in recent years has been primarily because of the health benefits that can be gained by going organic, and so this event is the perfect opportunity for you and your family to either trial going organic for the week, or, if you are already doing so, to spread the word to others.

We caught up with farmers and their families from six very different farms across Australia, all with one thing in common – they believe in the power of farming sustainably and with our future in mind.

Gas creates a stink

Friday, 19 August 2011
