The Soil Association is the charity and certification body for organic produce and the UK’s leading organisation campaigning for a healthy food culture, and planet-friendly farming. The Soil Association is a membership charity, and was founded in 1946 by a group of farmers, scientists, and nutritionists who believed that the health of the soil, plants, animals, people, and the environment are linked. Soil Association Scotland was set up in 2002 to bring Soil Association expertise closer to farmers, manufacturers, consumers and policy makers in Scotland.
Today I started working with the Soil Association as their Communications and Marketing Manager of their Scottish branch.
Tomorrow I'll need to take my gardening gloves to work as Wednesday is the day that some people from the Soil Association and other organisations in the office complex (a refurbished farm steading) gather together in the office allotment to do some gardening!
