Do you know that organic food (and other plants) is being produced
throughout Lincolnshire in small spaces?
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
develop an understanding of organic agriculture across its membership and to
the general public.
To achieve this it has programmes of learning (visits, demonstrations and speakers), runs active campaigns, develops mutual help support and advice, orchestrates seed swaps and sales and encourages the buying and selling of organic produce.
The Lincolnshire Organic Gardeners’ Organisation has a Facebook page and a website where you can be kept up to date with all of their activities – and join in!
People across Lincoln and Lincolnshire are working build community food knowledge, skills and resources.
