Episode 104: In Focus – The Organic Centre
This week for In Focus, Breifne headed north to the village of Rossinver to have a look at what The Organic Centre has to offer to Leitrim and the surrounding area.
He sat down with General Manager Jan Melia and Marketing Officer Dervilla Keegan to find out more about the events, courses and attractions in the 19 acre site built between limestone hills and Lough Melvin.
The Centre was developed to encourage organic production, the sustainable and ecological use of land, and to promote education and inclusion.
They started with 6 weekend courses in 1995 and have worked hard to ensure that we stay up to date and offer people high quality information and training growing their offering to over 80 courses from single day to year long opportunities.
We hear more about their individual days celebrating the seasonal produce that are grown on the site including Apple Day, Potato Day and specifically their upcoming Samhain at the Organic Centre event on 28th October from 12 noon to 4pm.
