Welcome to the Brisbane Organic Growers Inc. (BOGI) website where you can find details about the club, including how to JOIN the club. There is also information about organic gardening including content tailored to the Brisbane, Queensland area.

GUEST SPEAKER FOR AUGUST 2014 MEETING

David Gourlay from SoiLife will share his knowledge and practical ways of improving soil health across a number of industries including home gardening.
• Nutrition for plants, is essential as it becomes part of the human food chain. These days there is little nutrition in many of the crops produced for animal and human consumption.
• David will show you how easy it is to grow your own nutrition packed food. David will also explain ‘bundled’ beneficial microbes and why they will work for you 24/7.

GUEST SPEAKER FOR JULY 2014 MEETING

An old BOGI friend Morag Gamble from SEED International will be our July guest speaker. Morag will introduce us to a collection of incredible edibles – hardy plants that thrive in a subtropical climate, are low maintenance, and have low water requirements. Together they form the basis for a thriving garden that provides food, fibre, mulch, medicine and more.

GUEST SPEAKER FOR JUNE 2014 MEETING

Our June Guest Speaker will be Entomologist, Richard Bull. Richard will propose a fruit fly management program we can use in our gardens. This program is used mainly in commercial orchards and with backyard fruit growers. It is based on integrated pest management (IPM) principles and does occasionally include, when necessary, the use of non-organic products, but Richard will endeavour to use soft products and biological control agents whenever possible.

MAY 2014 MEETING

Composting Evening
Following the 2014 AGM it will be straight into our recognition of ‘International Composting Awareness Week Australia 5 - 11 May’ and the importance of composting in an organic garden.

• How you compost in your garden
• Composting additives
