Founded twenty five years ago, our group exists to encourage and support organic gardeners in the local communities of Nottingham and the surrounding area. We are a not-for-profit community organisation run entirely by volunteers and funded by membership fees and our annual Potato Day.
We organise a variety of events throughout the year including 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 produce a 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 seeds, a copy of each newsletter, opportunities to volunteers on our group allotment and priority bookings and discounts on all our trips and workshops.
Membership has been kept free on meetup.com and on facebook to allow people to find us and come along to events before deciding that the group is for them. However we do ask that for workshops a discretionary donation is received to cover the costs. For non-members to come along to talks we ask that a £2 visitors fee is paid.
