The SEER Centre Trust is a Scottish charity (SCO37139) with far-reaching global aims that are achievable via down to Earth local projects. The SEER Centre Gardens are open at different stages in the growing season, so the public can see, smell and taste our mineral-rich fresh produce grown in the SEER Centre terraces and also attend educational lectures in the gardens.

Individuals, groups and coach parties are welcome to visit the gardens by advance booking please. Email us or phone 01250 881789

Volunteers are welcome. See visitscotland.com for local accommodation.

Lecture:

Cameron and Moira Thomson,Co-Founders of The SEER Centre Trust, are available – at the SEER Centre or away – for presentations on their experience, experiments, discoveries, and development of The SEER Centre, SEER Rockdust®, Rocksoil® and Rockmix®.

Cameron explains how todays climate change is linked to Earth’s soil history and he discusses our potential to stabilise climate change by assisting soils to absorb excess CO2 via soil remineralisation and ecological management.

Moira demonstrates how this can be achieved on local levels, whether in containers, gardens or farms and woodlands. Her slide show gives a pictorial history of how the SEER Centre was created in a barren glen and developed to its present stage – 4 acres of beautiful terraced gardens and bumper organic health-promoting crops – the oasis in the glen.

Courses and working holidays: providing innovative ecological gardening and self-sufficiency knowledge and techniques as well as an opportunity to learn practical skills in the SEER Centre gardens and polytunnel.

SEER® Rockdust® – 420 million years old, crushed volcanic rock from SEER Approved quarries. Decades of rigorous gardening trials and scientific analysis show SEER® Rockdust® to be safe to add to soils and compost. Whilst chemical fertilisers may produce more immediate visual results, they can harm soil fauna, wildlife and waterways. SEER® Rockdust® is a completely natural product and adds a huge range of minerals and trace elements in natural proportions for long term soil health and nutrient-dense organic crops.

“SEER® Rockdust®” – 420 million years old, freshly ground, untreated, volcanic rock from Scottish quarries.

Decades of rigorous gardening trials and scientific analysis show SEER® Rockdust® to be safe to add to soils and compost.  Whilst chemical fertilisers may produce more immediate visual results, SEER Rockdust adds a huge range of mineral and trace elements for long term soil health.

The SEER Centre, and an growing vine of gardeners and farmers have found that SEER® Rockdust® can boost the activities of soil and compost fauna (soil micro-organisms and earthworms), and that thanks to the increased microbial activity, remineralised soil and compost can produce the following benefits:

  • BOOSTS organic soil fertility
  • HIGHER nutritional value of crops and pasture
  • LONGER shelf life of produce
  • LUSHER lawns and pasture
  • BIGGER YIELDS and healthier crops
  • BETTER flavour and juiciness
  • INCREASED pest resistance (less reliance on pesticides!)
  • IMPROVED disease resistance (less susceptibility to disease)
  • IMPROVED drought resistance (less need for irrigation)

“SEER® Rockdust® – also works as a COMPOST ACTIVATOR, encouraging microbial activity, creating a higher temperature, reducing odour, locking in more nitrogen and improving fertility of the compost
