"The Organic Kitchen Garden" Cockington Things to Do Tip by johngayton
Cockington Things to Do: 10 reviews and 20 photos
In the manor's heyday its kitchen garden would have made the house's kitchens pretty much self-sufficient for seasonal fruit and vegetables.
The garden is now set up as a learning resource focusing on educating people about how to grow crops using purely organic techniques without the use of artificial fertilisers or pesticides. There is a full-time gardener who works year-round with volunteer and trainee assistants and anyone interested can contact the Coutryside Trust via the website below.
However as pic #2 shows maybe winter isn't the best time of year to showcase the pesticidal methods involved, although, having said that, as an old gardener I worked with many years ago used to say: "You have to let nature take its course and the bugs deserve their little bit too."
