Eco days out for all the family

Much of the experimental work on organic gardening is carried out at the trial plots at Garden Organic near Coventry in Warwickshire.
Here you can see and learn about composting garden waste or to use mulches and other techniques to avoid the hard work of digging.
There are many small model gardens to demonstrate how you can use these organic methods at home. Another focus of Garden Organic is the preservation of old and threatened species of flowers and vegetables, and an amazing exhibition takes you into the world of vegetables.
The hands-on experiments will teach you such a lot about this important but often humble part of a healthy diet.
The produce of the gardens are offered for sale with a huge range of other food and drink – all organic of course – and the cafe offers delicious meals all made from ingredients grown on site.
The Eco House
The city of Leicester has always been proud of its green credentials which have been recognised Europe-wide.
The house is packed with energy-saving techniques, including solar panels and a small wind generator which collect nature’s energy bonus.
Inside you can pick up the many green messages from interactive displays. Best of all you can learn from the real equipment and devices in use in the house itself.
All around the garden children enjoy the swings while parents get some tips on living in tune with nature – we have to confess we were enjoying the swings too.
There are also guided tours and, of course, you won’t be surprised to discover you will end your tour with a visit to the Ecoshop and cafe.
Even in a new green world some things don’t change.
Centre for Alternative Technology
Nestled in the hillsides of southern Snowdonia is one of Britain’s most interesting ecocentres, the Centre for Alternative Technology.
The seven-acre site is brimming with interactive displays and working examples of sustainable living, renewable energy, environmentally responsible building, energy conservation, organic gardening and composting, each demonstrating what we can do to reduce our impact on the planet.
The centre is a great place for families, packed full of hands-on displays to keep you and the children busy for hours, plus there is a special programme of holiday activities which are both fun and educational.
