National organic fortnight

The Soil Association's Organic Fortnight is the UK's largest celebration of the organic industry. From the 3 – 17 September they are hoping we will all try something organic everyday during the two weeks and have come up with some great initiatives to get everyone involved. The organisation are hoping these events will encourage new growth in the organic market and change people's perception that the industry is elitist. So the theme this year is all about accessibility and affordability. Here are some ways that you can join in.
