More 2012 Details

Treat yourself to a fun family day at the Brisbane Organic Growers Fair on Sunday 7th October 2012. There will be stalls to visit, demonstrations to watch and scrumptious food to enjoy along with an animal nursery to delight the children.

The fair will spread from the Albion Peace Hall, 102 McDonald Road Windsor, under the Albion overpass and into the neighbouring park, with organic growers on hand to answer your queries and an extensive selection of vegetable plants, herbs and fruit trees to fill available space in the garden.

Stalls will sell everything from seedlings to recycled gardening tools. Organic fertilisers, additives and pest solutions will be available to the public at members’ prices from our BOGI Shop, with organic seeds including many heirloom varieties provided from our BOGI seed bank and from Eden Seeds. Organic gardening books will be on sale at the fair.

After wandering around the stalls, enjoy the home-made fare at the BOGI Café including freshly cooked organic sausages, quiches, salads, cakes, tea and coffee. Then check out the members’ produce entered into the BOGI Competition which showcases what can be achieved with organic methods.

Come in for a look and stay for the day which concludes with the produce auction from 2.30 in the afternoon. Entry is free for all ages.
