2018 BOGI Fair

The 2018 BOGI Fair will be held at the Peace Hall, 102 McDonald Road Windsor (near the Albion railway station), on Sunday the 26th of August from 9am-3pm (FREE admission). This will be the 32nd Brisbane Organic Growers Fair. 

This year we will be doing free soil ph testing, so bring along a small sample of your soil in a jar to be tested.

Thanks so much to all of our members, volunteers, speakers, stallholders and supporters for helping to make it such a great day.
