Organic Fortnight (September 5-20, 2009) is a nationwide campaign highlighting all the great things about organic. Up and down the UK, people in shops, schools, cafes, churches and farms will be hosting events and raising awareness about why organic is the healthy choice, the best for animal welfare and the right thing for the planet.
The largest event during this time is the Organic Food Festival. This takes place at the Bristol Harbourside on Saturday, September 12th and Sunday, September 13th. This is where they showcase all things organic. The theme is Taste the Future, but it's not all about food. They cover everything from clothing to skin care to home design. The purpose is to highlight the growth of the organic movement and increase recognition of the role organic production can play in creating a sustainable future.
