Do you know that organic food (and other plants) is being produced

From small gardens, to large gardens, allotments and small holdings, the Lincolnshire Organic Gardeners’ Organisation (LOGO) promotes the principles and practice of organic
horticulture and agriculture.
Formed over 20 years ago, and affiliated to Garden Organic, LOGO is keen to
