Proud to be Organic
Founded twenty five years ago, our group exists to encourage and support organic gardeners in the local area of Nottingham. We are a not-for-profit community organisation run entirely by volunteers and funded by membership fees.
We organise a variety of events throughout the year including the Annual Nottingham Potato Day, garden visits, workshops, plant swaps and seasonal celebrations. All these create opportunities for like-minded people to gather together and share their passion for organic gardening. We are affiliated to Garden Organic.
See our Events Page for what's on
We produce a quarterly newsletter which aims to promote gardening related events and projects that are happening across the city. The newsletter also reports on activities that the group have been involved with and details our forthcoming events.
NOGs membership offers free access to most of our events, discounts on group orders of organic composts and seeds, a copy of each newsletter, opportunities to volunteers on our group allotment and priority bookings and discounts on all our trips and workshops.
We are a friendly local group in Nottingham, aiming to promote organic gardening, sustainable gardening and a more localised food culture. We have been an organised group since 1987 and we all look forward to sharing Organic Gardening with many more Nottingham Residents.
We meet every month for sociable talks about organic gardening and related issues, learning from speakers and also pooling our own knowledge. In summer we have visits to organic gardens and farms. At the start of Spring there's our famous POTATO DAY! It's the place to get a wide variety of seed potatoes to begin the gardening year.
NOGs has a Demonstration Allotment where members and local people work together every other Saturday and alternate Monday, putting organic theory into action. We also have socials, summer meetings and practical demonstrations of organic techniques for our members and the public.
