The Organic Centre, Rossinver, Co. Leitrim

IMG_2169On July 13th I went to the Open Day at the Organic Centre, Rossinver. It’s one of those places I’ve wanted to visit for a long time but never actually got there. I’m one of those people who turn up early to everything…only this time I didn’t realise the Sligo Stages Rally was taking place in that area….so I kind of ended up in the rally!! I was very pleased when I ended up at the Organic Centre in one piece.

IMG_2066It really is a lovely place, full of hidden walkways, gardens and polytunnels. There is also a wonderful cafe and the food looks amazing, I didn’t try any  (no money as usual) but other people were enjoying it.

IMG_2075At the open day there were various demonstrations taking place and lots to see and do.

IMG_2350I got to hear some tips from Hans about gardening, he was explaining that watering in polytunnels should be done in the morning as the plants grow during the day and if it’s done at night it will encourage slugs, so that’s something I’ve changed with my greenhouse now as I was watering at night.

IMG_2276Gaby was explaining how to make Kombucha, I’ve never tried it before but it was very nice. To be honest the ‘SCOBY’  looks like most of the glasses I rescue from Lucy’s room, maybe she’s just trying her hand at fermenting.

IMG_2235There were all kinds of plants to see and I loved the sensory garden, I also loved the fences, what a great idea.
