Events promote organic produce

Riverford Organic Vegetables and potato supplier Greenvale AP are sponsoring Organic Fortnight - a nationwide event organised by the Soil Association to promote organic products.

The fortnight takes place on 6-21 September and this year has the message "Love Your Planet, Choose Organic".

The Soil Association will see its supporters host events across the country, from organic farm open days to organic cookery lessons in schools.

The events kick off with the Soil Association Organic Food Festival on 6-7 September, at Bristol Harbourside. The festival is sponsored by Yeo Valley Organic.
