Go organic to save veg at risk.

GARDEN Organic at Ryton is encouraging people to grow and cook organic food to save rare varieties of vegetables which are threatened by extinction.

Along with home-ware company Portmeirion, it is launching the 'Go Organic' campaign to raise funds for the centre's heritage seed library, which conserves 800 species of rare vegetable.

It wants food lovers to host an organic meal for friends and family and donate the proceeds to the charity.

Graeme Elliot, events manager for Garden Organic, said: "The sponsored meal does not have to be cordon bleu or 100 per cent organic, but adding some ingredients with an organic flavour not only helps raise the profile of the charity but also shows your friends how tasty organic food really is, especially if it is your own home grown produce."

Anyone interested in taking part can register online at or call 024 7630 3517.
