South East Essex Organic Gardeners - "Where has the UK growing media industry got to with peat reduction?"

Saturday, 18 January 2020 -
7:30pm to 9:00pm


Join South East Essex Organic Gardeners for this compelling presentation, "Where has the UK growing media industry got to with peat reduction?"

The presentation will be hosted online by Catherine Dawson who will provide information about industry-wide, Defra-supported Responsible Sourcing of Growing Media Scheme, which is soon-to-launch. Melcourt will be used as an example to illustrate how peat-free growing is perfectly feasible across a wide range of growing applications together with information about how the uniformity and consistency - that is so essential - is achieved.

Catherine Dawson, who is Technical Director of Melcourt and a former chair of the Growing Media Association, has worked with peat-free horticultural growing media / composts for more than three decades. In that time, she has developed with colleagues various award-winning peat-free growing media that are now sold throughout the UK to a wide range of professional growers and gardeners alike.
