You will find a wide range of seeds, plants, and organic products, as well as produce grown by our members, available for purchase at each general meeting. Note that only Members may sell produce. The BOGI Books, BOGI Library, BOGI Seeds, and BOGI Shop are open on the night. There is also a Buy-Sell-Swap Table for Members.
There is a raffle held each meeting - tickets are just $1.
Raffle items are generally donated by Members and usually consist of plants or other handy gardening items.
There is also a food tree donated each raffle by Clutterbuck Family Trust. The legacy of this donation has been many thousands of native and food trees planted throughout the country.
If you bring something for supper (excluding the December meeting), you get two raffle tickets. Inform the raffle person at the door about your contribution to receive the tickets.
At the end of the meeting supper is provided. It is appreciated if members can contribute to the supper a couple of times per year. As an incentive, two raffle tickets are given to people who provide something for supper. Any assistance is also appreciated in helping to prepare for the supper and clean up afterwards.
