BOGI Garden Flood Recovery Day - 19 March 2011

"GET SOME LIFE BACK INTO YOUR GARDEN"

Brisbane Organic Growers is co-coordinating a garden recovery program to assist our friends in Brisbane and Ipswich to re-establish their gardens following the recent devastating floods. We are encouraging all of our members to grow seedlings, transplants and cuttings. They should be grown in tubes, plastic pots or bags, polystyrene boxes or jiffy pots to be ready for distribution on 19 March 2011 at the Peace Hall, Windsor.
