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 general meetings are held at the Peace Hall in Windsor on the first Thursday of every month except Janurary.

 


GUEST SPEAKER FOR JUNE 2016 MEETING

Our guest speaker for the June meeting will be Shane Gishford. Many of you will know Shane who is an Agronomist and Soil Foodweb adviser, and who sells fresh, local produce near the rear door of the hall on meeting nights. Shane will be talking about Neem Oil, telling us the experiences of growers who have been using it.

MAY 2016 MEETING

This is the meeting when you will have an opportunity to express your gratitude for the effort members of the BOGI Executive, Committee and Office Bearers have contributed to ‘Your’ club to keep it running smoothly while satisfying the requirements of as many members as possible using organic methods to grow our plants.

We do not hassle or put pressure on any member to take on any role in our club as volunteers are usually easy to find when required.

GUEST SPEAKER FOR APRIL 2016 MEETING

The April meeting is your chance to take centre stage for a short time, it is 'Snapshot' night. How can you be part of it?

1. Take 1 (one) photo 'Snapshot' of something in your garden - it could be a shot of your garden in general, a particular plant, a flower, piece of fruit, a seed/seedling, a garden bed, an invention, a diseased plant, a pest (good or bad), a scarecrow - just something in your garden you'd love to share.
