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.
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.
Following the AGM we will have SOIL – BACK TO BASICS
There’s a buzz in the air! There is a new growers market starting in Sandgate and we need you to help us with providing fresh, home grown produce and products!
Why a new market in Sandgate?

March brings us another “soil” speaker for the 2015 International Year of Soils. Leanne Harper has a small business, Home Soil Solutions.
