About us

Norfolk Organic Group is a membership organisation established to promote organic growing in Norfolk and act as a local group for Garden Organic and the Soil Association. We are people who want to grow organically including gardeners, allotmenteers, smallholders and farmers, as well as those interested in a more sustainable and regenerative way of life. We provide advice and guidance about the benefits of an organic approach and how by looking after the Earth, we look after ourselves.

We are a c​harity, managed by a team of volunteers and reliant on the generosity of our members who give their time, resources and energy to support our activities.
