Nottingham Organic Gardeners

Promoting sustainable gardening

We are a friendly group in Nottingham, aiming to promote organic and sustainable gardening, and a more localised food culture. We have an Organic Demonstration Garden at Whitemoor Allotments in Nottingham and hold regular events and trips with an organic theme. 

Talk: 'Moving towards the Food Sovereignty of Nottingham City'

How did  research in Uganda lead to Moorgreen Veg, a micro-scale social enterprise? Hear from Bridget Leadbeater about how her work on semi-subsistence, small-scale banana cultivation inspired a project cultivating fresh produce, supplying the newly established Nottingham Mapperley Food Assembly online farmers’ market. 

Lisa Gertson will show how The Food Assembly has opened the door for small-scale local growers like Moorgreeen Veg to share and sell their produce locally. This mobilisation of allotmenteers, gardeners and small-scale producers has the potential to significantly support an ecologically sustainable supply of fresh produce in Nottingham city.

Takes place at The Polish Eagle Club. Members (free) and non-members (£2) all welcome.
