“Healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy people.” (Lady Eve Balfour, Founder of the Soil Association, 1946)
Norfolk Organic Group is a membership organisation of about 200 gardeners, smallholders, farmers and others interested in organic food.
We are affiliated to and act as a local group for Garden Organic, the national charity for organic growing (formerly the Henry Doubleday Research Association (HDRA), www.gardenorganic.org.uk) and the Soil Association,who campaign for planet-friendly food and farming (www.soilassociation.org).
Norfolk Organic Group aims to promote the organic movement in Norfolk by encouraging people to grow organically and to use resources sustainably, maintaining the link between people, food and the soil.
We do this by:
- Holding informative monthly meetings, with guest speakers, from September to April.
- Arranging stimulating visits during the summer season to gardens, smallholdings, farms, and other places of interest and inspiration (including organic guru and Norfolk Organic Group President, Bob Flowerdew’s garden!)
- Producing and distributing a quarterly newsletter for our membership.
