The New Organic Grower

Author of the book cited as kicking off the Organic Farming Revolution, is coming to Manchester on January 8th (get your tickets now!).

We are excited and honoured to be welcoming Eliot Coleman to Manchester on Tuesday the 8th of January, to share his wisdom from the last 30 years since he wrote his original and ground breaking books.

Known for pioneering 4 season organic growing in the states and developing a range of super useful practical tools (like the broadfork), Eliot is a huge inspiration to small scale organic growers and serious gardeners worldwide.

During the day on the 8th Glebelands City Growers will be hosting an event including a delicious lunch and a walk around their site with Eliot to discuss winter growing in practice.

For those who can’t make the day time event, Kindling are hosting an evening at Bridge 5 Mill. Eliot will talk to us about what he has learnt over the last 30 years – both in the garden and on the political food and farming scene.

Excitingly Eliot will be joined by Barbara Damrosch author of the Four Season Farm Gardener's Cook book (written by Barbara Damrosh and Eliot Coleman), who will be joining the conversation.


So much to talk about and so little time – come and join us for a fascinating and informative evening and Q&A with Eliot Coleman and Barbara Damrosch, talking about four season organic gardening, mouth-watering food and the politics of the organic movement.

Date – 8th Jan 2018, 6.45 for a 7pm start

About the book: Inspired by the European intensive growers, The New Organic Grower30th Anniversary Edition, offers a very approachable and productive form of farming that has proven to work well for the earth and its stewards for centuries. Gardeners working on 2.5 acres or less will find this book especially useful, as it offers proof that small-scale market growers and serious home gardeners can live good lives close to the land and make a profit at the same time. The New Organic Grower is ideal for young farmers just getting started, or gardeners seeking to expand into a more productive enterprise.


Here is what people are saying about the book:

“Every small-scale grower and serious gardener should have a copy.”

— Robert Rodale, Rodale Press

“I know of no other person who can produce better results on the land with an economy of effort and means than Eliot. He has transformed gardening from a task, to a craft, and finally to what Stewart Brand would call ‘local science’.”

— Paul Hawken, best-selling author and entrepreneur
