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: Plants for Pigmentation - Audrey Leach


Plants for Pigmentation or Plants for Dyeing

Eating locally produced food has become mainstream in recent years. But for some, simply eating locally grown veggies just doesn't take localism far enough: we should wear them too. Or, more specifically, we should dye our clothes with them.

Audrey Leach heads an organisation called Primary Gardens, put the case for introducing locally grown natural dyes to our gardens.
