You are an organic garden educator working with teachers and young people in schools and communities in order to help them to ...
[i] develop a positive attitude towards getting involved in gardening including food growing;
[ii] acquire gardening skills that are of practical use, and
[ii] understand the imperative and benefits of doing all this organically.
So how do you react when, at the end of a programme, someone says:
"That was great. I have learned so much; it was such a brilliant course – and great teaching. I've already started on my own garden plot at home with my family and we will be growing vegetables next season. We're also looking for a local allotment. I love it: fresh air, good food and a sense of achievement. There's just one thing, I'm not really persuaded about this organic business."
