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.
Our guest speaker will be Joe Wilde, Nursery Manager of Greening Australia. The Gap. Joe will give us a short history of Greening Australia. Tell us about The Gap nursery (what we do, what we stock, our role in environmental repair). He will also cover helpful topics such as knowing your land and knowing your plants, developing and reconnecting our relationship with the earth and our communities, transforming mindscapes to transform landscapes and a little encouraging story about a hummingbird.
