The annual fair is one of the ways that the BOGI club promotes the benefits of organic growing and living to the wider community. It is also the main fundraising activity for the BOGI club. The fair day has been changed to the last Sunday in August and runs from 9 AM until 3 PM at The Peace Hall.
The fair is a free public event and includes all sorts of gardening information and demonstrations. Items are for sale, such as plants, seeds, fresh produce, preserves, organic fertilisers & pesticides, and more.
One of the main highlights of the fair is the BOGI competition where the produce from members compete in different categories. This allows Members and visitors to see what can be achieved organically in backyard gardens. The best part is that the organic produce is auctioned off at the end of the day.
Delicious and healthy food is available for purchase from the BOGI Cafe.
No dogs are allowed on the day.
See the 2016 BOGI Fair page for additional information on this year's fair.
The success of the fair depends on the active participation from Members in the club, whether it be providing baked goods for the cafe, helping on the day, or assisting at a BOGI stall. Members are also encouraged to recycle 200mm plastic pots with plants to help liven up the area. These plants are sold off at the end of the fair.
