Soil Association Organic Fortnight 2010

Two weeks of celebration of all things organic from food to skincare

Organic Fortnight, run by the Soil Association, takes place during September, with events across the UK, raising awareness of the environmental, health and social benefits of organic production. Visit the Soil Association's website to find out how you can play your part by celebrating all things organic.

Individuals, businesses and communities will be hosting events to raise awareness of organic production, giving everyone an opportunity to sample organic products, whether it's food, skincare or organic textiles.

Organic Food Festival
The fortnight launches with the Soil Association Organic Food Festival, Europe's largest organic celebration and sponsored by Yeo Valley Organic, which takes place in Bristol at the start of the fortnight. This takes place in Bristol harbour with food markets, street food, demonstration kitchen, talks, a green planet pavilion and more. Check out exhibitors online.

The campaign closes with the Soil Association Scotland's Organic Food Festival.
